Professor Ann McGinley Interviewed by Las Vegas Review-Journal

Ann McGinley is a William S. Boyd Professor of Law at UNLV.

On Feb. 15, the Las Vegas Review-Journal ran an article titled “Businesses tread carefully with vaccination policies” discussing the recently confirmed case of measles at a resort restaurant and the question of whether companies can require employees to get vaccinated.

The article, which includes comments from Professor McGinley, stated: “Companies wanting to implement a vaccinations policy would have a simpler task limiting the rules to new employees, according to Ann McGinley, a law professor at the William S. Boyd School of Law. In order to create a new policy for existing employees, company officials would have to show that having workers vaccinated is job related and consistent with business necessity, she said.”

Professor McGinley is an internationally recognized scholar in the area of employment law, employment discrimination and disability law and a leader in Multidimensional Masculinities Theory, an emerging discipline that applies masculinities theory from social sciences to legal interpretation.
