Discussion about vaccination

Now that several American organizations have made it mandatory for their employees to get vaccinated, Dutch organization LeasePlan recently decided to be the first organization in the Netherlands to implement a similar vaccination measure: employees who want to work at their office must be vaccinated against the coronavirus. However, LeasePlan will not check whether or not employees who come to office are indeed vaccinated. Legal experts have questioned LeasePlan’s measure: employees may regard it as a type of compulsory vaccination. Under current Dutch law, organizations can in principle not make vaccination mandatory. Still, LeasePlan has emphasized its duty of care and thus its duty to provide a safe and sound working environment. Although a court ruling could clarify the confusion arisen in response to LeasePlan’s measure, the organization has stated they want the government to provide this clarity. Minister De Jonge of the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport has expressed his opposition to compulsory vaccination. Instead, he is currently looking into alternative solutions.
