Only during a pandemic do these issues arise. Carol Goodman, chair of the employment practice at Herrick Feinstein, noted that the firm has been receiving a number of inquiries lately from companies thinking about hosting a wine tasting or other social engagement for clients.

Yet some are still unsure about what kinds of admissions requirements they can put in place. Can they ask for proof of vaccination?
