President Biden’s latest effort to tackle Covid-19 includes requiring companies with more than 100 employees to mandate that their workers get vaccinated or face weekly testing. The new rule will affect some 80 million workers.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is charged with keeping America’s workplaces safe. Now the tiny Labor Department agency has been tossed into the raging national debate over federal COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
What can employers do if workers avoid COVID-19 vaccines? They can require the shots, and fire employees who don’t comply or take other actions like charging extra for health insurance.
What people are saying?
Julia Craft How about we turn this around on them, instead of the unvaxxed being shamed, let’s be scared of the vaxxed. I know that I am, I’d prefer to stay away from vaxxed folks, I feel like I could contract the virus more so from the vaxxed then unvaxxed.
Knuckle Racket Man So restaurant workers with 50 employees that handle are foods aren’t required to get the vaccine but a company that has a 1000 of employees that work from home are required. This makes no sense.
