Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Sanford Heisler Sharp has been a firm that has demonstrated flexibility and concern for the well-being of our employees and our communities. We were among the first law firms in the nation to publicly announce that we were moving to a remote work environment and to develop a COVID-19 vaccine policy for employees. The firm will continue to rely on the science to guide its decisions in 2022 and beyond. As of mid-September 2022, employees are required to work from their office two days per week, and any employee may work full-time from their office if they prefer. The firm will continue to regularly assess and adjust its COVID-19 policies and its hybrid work schedule as necessary.

Sanford Heisler Sharp employees must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (with the exception of Nashville where due to state law vaccines are not mandatory but strongly encouraged for Firm employees), including obtaining the COVID-19 boosters within the time frame recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). If you accept an offer from the firm and choose not to get vaccinated for religious, medical reasons, or other applicable legal requirements, you may seek a reasonable accommodation.
