MANDATORY VACCINATION POLICY
896. Hon Dr STEVE THOMAS to the Leader of the House
representing the Premier:
refer to the government's requirement for mandatory vaccination for
employees of businesses in Western Australia, which was announced on 20 October
(1) How will businesses in Western Australia
be assessed for compliance with this policy?
(2) How does the government expect
businesses to deal with employees who refuse to get vaccinated?
(3) How will the government assist
businesses who lose critical employees due to noncompliance?
(4) What assistance will the
government offer to businesses to help them to comply with the policy?
I thank the honourable member for
some notice of the question.
government is currently consulting with affected industries on the mandatory
vaccination requirements announced on 20 October 2021. That consultation will
inform the drafting of legal directions and
implementation issues such as compliance. The government encourages all Western
Australians, including employees captured in the mandatory vaccination policy,
to get vaccinated as soon as possible.
