COVID-19 Vaccination Policy
Earthjustice recognizes the vital role COVID-19 vaccines play in keeping staff safe. The importance of in-person activities (travel, court appearances, staff meetings, etc.) underscore the need for staff to be vaccinated against COVID-19.
As a result, Earthjustice requires staff to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment consistent with applicable law.
