Israel Quoted in Law360 About Sports Leagues’ Vaccination Requirements

12 January 2021 Law360 News

Partner Jon Israel was quoted in the Law360 article, “Sports Leagues Risk Labor Unrest By Requiring Vaccines,” that explores whether professional sports leagues can require COVID-19 vaccines for players and the legal issues that could result from the requirements, including potential labor disputes.

Israel told Law360, leagues and players are "all economically incentivized to have full-on games and attendance and have people spending money watching [their] games,” so "maybe that is how you get everyone on board and those who have real issues with taking the vaccine are dealt with on a case-by-case basis working through those individual issues."

Israel also commented on the issues collective bargaining agreements could present and how each side could gain leverage.
