We have received a number of queries from employers about vaccination requirements. As the regulatory body, PGDB does not require workers to be vaccinated at this time. The Ministry of Health has not at this time made it compulsory for those in the building and construction sector to be vaccinated.
It is important that all tradespeople follow the law which includes public health directives. We are not able to give you employment law advice and suggest that the best place for you to start is with your employment contracts and employment requirements.
Workers with concerns about the vaccination requirements of their workplace should address these with their employer. For those who are self-employed, it is important to follow the guidance from the Ministry of Health.
For more information about the COVID-19 vaccines visit the Ministry of Health’s website.
