United States: So you say you're vaccinated? Prove it! (Except as prohibited by employment or privacy laws) (Video Chat)

In brief

US employers want employees to return to the brick and mortar workplace but with the COVID-19 Delta variant rampaging across the US and elsewhere, many employers are requiring employees to be vaccinated before they return – and they are requiring proof of vaccination.
