Must an employee provide proof of being fully vaccinated as a condition of employment?

As a condition of employment, an employee must be fully vaccinated or request an exemption due to a disability and/or medical condition or if the requirement conflicts with an employee's sincerely held religious belief, practice, or observance. If a requested exemption is granted, an employer must determine whether or not the employee can be reasonably accommodated. If the employer determines an employee can be accommodated in accordance with state and federal laws, the employee may continue their employment. An employee who fails to meet this condition of employment will be subject to a separation in accordance with WAC 357-19-410, or a disability separation in accordance with WAC 357-46-160, or a nondisciplinary separation in accordance with WAC 357-46-195.
This section applies to executive and small cabinet agencies as defined in Directive 22-13.1, issued August 5, 2022, by the governor. Higher education employers, independent agencies, boards, councils, commissions, and separately elected officials may require an employee to meet the requirements of this section.
