COVID VACCINATION POLICY

In accordance with Poster House’s duty to provide and maintain a workplace that is free of known hazards, we are adopting this policy to safeguard the health of our employees and their families; our customers and visitors; and the community at large from infectious diseases, such as COVID-19 or influenza, that may be reduced by vaccinations. This policy will comply with all applicable laws and is based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and local health authorities, as applicable.

Poster House mandates that all staffers who work on site at the museum are vaccinated in an effort to protect the health and safety of both our staff and our visitors. Poster House provides 4 hours of PTO in order to receive the vaccination and can assist in making an appointment, or staffers can make their own appointment online. New employees must have 2 doses of the Moderna or Pfizer vaccine, or one dose of Johnson & Johnson, by their start date with Poster House, and will be required to show proof of vaccination by showing their physical vaccination card, or using the Excelsior Pass or other government sanctioned vaccine app. All vaccine related information will be kept private under HIPAA regulations by Poster House and its employees.

If employees have a qualifying medical exemption or sincerely held religious belief that prevents them from getting that vaccine, they should request a Reasonable Accommodation Form from the Museum Director, which will be reviewed by the Director as well as HR representatives at ADP. Employees may be required to substantiate their request for exemption with the appropriate documentation. Staff will not be subject to discrimination or retaliation based on their vaccination status.

Those who are unvaccinated will not be able to come to the museum in person without submitting to additional testing, masking, and other precautions including being placed on unpaid leave until further determinations can be made.

NON DISCRIMINATION POLICY

Poster House is an equal opportunity employer, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, ancestry, age, marital status, citizenship status, veteran status, disability or any other criterion specified by federal, state or local laws, in the administration of its employment policy.
