LWTech will require all staff (including student employees), faculty, volunteers, and contractors/vendors who participate in operations or other activities in person to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, subject to any medical exemptions required by law and any religious exemptions provided, as a qualification of fitness for continued employment. Employees who refuse will be subject to non-disciplinary dismissal from employment for failing to meet the qualifications of the job. The process for Academic and Classified employees are set forth in their respective bargaining agreements.
