What to Know if Your Employer Wants You to Get Vaccinated for Covid

What it could take to deliver a Covid-19 vaccine to the world

If you’ve been dreaming about going back to the office, news of a promising Covid-19 vaccinecould mean you’ll be back at your desk sooner than you thought.

Want to work from home forever? Here’s what you need to know

There are obvious benefits to having a workforce that’s been immunized from coronavirus, but can your employer require you to get vaccinated?

Some workers might be hesitant about getting a vaccine or feel uncomfortable about their employer having a say in their medical decisions.

But legal experts say that employers can mandate getting the shot. Whether they should is a different matter.

Some jobs already have vaccination requirements. For instance, some health care workers are required to get flu shots.

“This idea that vaccines can be mandated is well-established,” said Jay Rosenlieb, partner and chair of the Labor and Employment Group at Klein DeNatale Goldner law firm in California.

Once a Covid vaccine becomes available, experts think some employers are likely to require workers to get it.

“I fully expect there will be employers that choose to make it mandatory,” said David Barron, an employment attorney at Cozen O’Connor.

But federal protections could allow for some exceptions. Workers with underlying medical conditions might be exempt under the Americans with Disabilities Act. And Title VII of the Civil Rights Act could allow employees with “sincerely held” religious beliefs against a vaccine to seek accommodations.

Under these circumstances, employers would have to provide reasonable accommodation. That could mean allowing the employee to work from home, or to use personal protective equipment in the office along with other health and safety measures, according to Rosenlieb.

Not wanting to get the vaccine for moral or political reasons would not be protected.

But making vaccination mandatory could open an employer up to potential workers’ compensation claims if an employee suffers any negative side effects. And that could cause some companies to stop short of making it a condition of employment.

“If an employee has an adverse reaction to a mandated vaccination, that could become a workers’ comp claim at least,” said Rosenlieb.

Forcing employees to get the vaccine could also create a PR headache for the company.

“Employees love to discuss political issues, and a vaccine mandate is going to spur on that discussion,” noted Rosenlieb. That talk could leak outside company walls and onto social media.

“The employer then becomes exposed to social media conversations that they otherwise would not want to be exposed to.”

Instead of a mandate, employers could try to encourage and motivate employees to get vaccinated.

“I don’t think anybody wants to mandate it. They just don’t want the bad vibes that come from a mandated program,” said Rosenlieb.

He suggested employers take a multi-pronged approach: allow workers to get the vaccine on company time, have senior leadership promote that they got the vaccine, and engage the union to promote the shot.

He also said that workers who do not get the vaccine should not be discriminated against.

    Big pharma has immunity from prosecution for poisoning you with a vaccine. Your employer does not so if they force you and cause your health to decline, sue the Hell out of them.

      Too late to sue your employer if you’re dead, :eek: :eek:
      Or even worse. ‘ soul dead.’ :eek: :eek: :eek:

      But if i was slightly less paranoid :lol: :lol: i’d certainly be getting them to sign some sort of liability form for any health issues arising subsequent to a mandatory vax.

      Until the NEXT round of mutations.
      already Fraudci is saying there wont be one kill shot, but several; a ‘schedule’.
      MSM and alot of fake alt media trying hard as hell to get us into a civil war to kill each other.
      NO WAY.
      we unite, and go on the hunt- Gates, Soros, Rothschild, and all the jewish “legal experts” that keep pushing this digital tracking ID bs. of course the jews already have a vaccine opt out clause via their ‘perennially persecuted jew’ horse manure.
      Better wake up folks- cause THIS is what it looks like and you’ll never see this on MSM

    The answer is for all company employees to simply refuse. Let them run the company at the CEO level.

    Just never take one. End of story.

    If anyone gets fired, it’s better to be Right with Christ than to be employed.

    Matthew 16:25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for My Sake shall find it.

    Mark 8:35 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it; but whosoever shall lose his life for My Sake and the gospel’s, the same shall save it.

    Luke 9:24 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: but whosoever will lose his life for My Sake, the same shall save it.

    Luke 17:33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

    Those Words of Christ go for all sorts of scenarios.

    ( a vaccine will not save your life; just the opposite.)

    Amongst other actual poisons in any shot, are aborted fetal cells and or tissue.

    We were never meant to have cushy lives, anyway but to look forward to His Holy Government that He Will Bring down to earth.

    Revelation 3:12 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the Temple of My God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the Name of my God, and the Name of the City of my God, which is New Jerusalem, which cometh down out of Heaven from My God: and I will write upon him My New Name.

    Revelation 21:2 And I John saw the Holy City, New Jerusalem, Coming Down from God out of Heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.
