Taking jabs to return to vaccinated workplaces
Safe for you and us
Each day more of us are getting jabbed. So far over 80% of MinterEllison is fully vaccinated. When lockdowns end and borders open, our offices will be vaccinated workplaces.
What does this mean?
Once our Return to Office Policy comes into effect only fully vaccinated MinterEllison partners and employees, clients, suppliers and visitors can meet and work at our offices. Please plan ahead before visiting our offices to avoid inconvenience. Virtual meetings will remain in place for the unvaccinated or partially vaccinated.
Our Return to Office policy comes into effect in each of our 7 Australian offices (Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide, Darwin and Perth) depending on whether State or Territory directions allow employees to return to the workplace, when borders are open to interstate travel, or when MinterEllison considers it safer for only vaccinated people to have access to our offices. For some offices, this will come into effect sooner than others.
Our priority is to keep everyone who is visiting and meeting in our workplaces safe.
Visiting us. Only if you are fully vaccinated.
When professional services employees in Sydney, Canberra and Melbourne are permitted to return to the workplace, all clients and visitors to our offices must be fully vaccinated. Please plan ahead and be organised. You will be required to prove your vaccination status, scan in using a government QR code to enable contact tracing and record your details in our Visitor Portal.
Depending upon community vaccination targets and public health orders, access to Sydney and Canberra is achieved in mid-late October and Melbourne in early November.
When borders open for domestic travel, to Brisbane, Adelaide, Darwin and Perth, without the need to quarantine, all clients and visitors to our offices in those locations must be fully vaccinated. Clients and visitors will also need to show vaccination proof and comply with our COVID safe processes.
Wanting us to visit you? We will be fully vaccinated.
We want our partners and employees to feel safe when visiting your offices. Only fully vaccinated partners and employees will visit clients and suppliers who have a similar workplace vaccination policy. Our partners and employees will comply with all COVID safe workplace policies and procedures when at client or supplier premises.
We are in this together. We want to work with you so we all remain safe.
