Feds say employers can require
workers to get COVID vaccine

Original Article

It’s the jab or the job. Employers are allowed under federal law to require workers to get a COVID-19 vaccine before they can physically return to the workplace, according to updated guidance issued by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission Friday. But they must provide “reasonable accommodations” for workers who refuse the shots because of a disability—including pregnancy—or for religious reasons, the agency said. The decision may mean unvaccinated employees could be required to wear masks, or to work remotely. The EEOC’s rules also gave the green light to companies offering incentives as a means of encouraging staffers to get vaccinated,

Shouldn't this come under State laws? Outside the enumerated powers of the Federal Government? Maybe they should have the SCOTUS declare the vaccine to be a tax!

Feds will rely on 1905, Supreme Court decision in the case of Jacobson v Mass where the 7-2 vote approved that a vaccine can be mandated (under certain circumstances). Opponents will rely on Nuremberg Code (1947, I think) where you cannot coerce compliance. Added factor, 1905 decision covered vaccine and Moderna and Pfizer shots do not meet the definition of a vaccine.

Except these aren’t vaccines. They are still authorized under the EUA. And when the BBC covid / vax reporter dropped dead this week from a clot complication related to the “vax” the swell of lawsuits is starting. Especially with vac mfgrs granted immunity, the employers will pay dearly.

Not legally. No one can force another to have an experimental medical procedure, according to the Nuremberg Code and international law. Of course, outlaw nations such as china and the U.S. under the demoncrats don't worry about such things as morals, ethics or the law.

Don't want to comply, follow #1's advice - Don't work there. Jobs are dime a dozen today. Employers can make vaccination a condition of employment. No one is forced. "At will employment" is exactly that. There's an exit door over there if you choose not to follow their rules. The job is theirs to hire, not yours to keep.

Methodist Hospital in Houston has stated they will terminate anyone that does not get vaccinated. Half their employees have not, and have filed a lawsuit. I can see testing employees to see if they test positive. The tests work, don't they? What's the problem? Just because covid test results are positive 95% of the time, and wrong the same percentage. I have the same level of confidence in this vaccine as I do in the tests, which caution about the tests has been borne out. Now we are being told there are cheaper alternatives to the vaccine. We are also being told by the authorities that the vaccine does not prevent you from getting the virus. The government lied for a year and a half, now saying the virus is man made. With all the lying, and being wrong all the time, it is easy to see why people ignore anything the government has to say.

You might want to give the employer a letter that you will cooperate under protest to preserve the decorum of the company- but don't sign anything that releases them from responsibility if it goes sour. Which it will, in some cases. By the way, how have any liability claims for vaccine side effects been going?

Manhattan’s Billionaires’ Row will soon feature a men’s homeless shelter smack-bang in the middle of it despite a three-year offensive to halt its creation by members of the city’s elite, the New York Court of Appeals has ruled. Residents of the city’s priciest street fought tooth and nail to halt Mayor de Blasio’s $60.8 million plan to open a 150-bed men’s shelter in the closed Park Savoy Hotel at 158 W. 58th St., arguing the location would be a dangerous “firetrap” and that crime would inevitably ensue on the ritzy block.

Tallahassee, Fla.—The Biden administration is urging a federal court to dismiss a lawsuit that could stand in the way of states like Florida in allowing prescription drugs to be imported from Canada. In a legal brief filed Friday, the White House argues that the lawsuit filed on behalf of U.S. pharmaceutical companies was premature because the federal government has yet to approve any importation programs. The administration’s legal filing came on the same day Florida’s Republican governor, who is considering a run for the White House in 2024, called on the Biden administration to approve its drug importation application.

Houston–She wondered what the children knew. Kimberly Hewitt noticed them playing outside Cuney Homes when she arrived on the anniversary of George Floyd's killing and feared the deaths of Black people were starting to seem too normal. She did not want young people here to think an early death was their fate, too. Hewitt and several dozen well-wishers prayed. They recited Floyd's name and released a panoply of red and gold balloons into the sky. Yet the mourning was hardly over. Floyd was only one in a cascade of neighborhood men to die lately, and they had another funeral to attend.

Florida is threatening to slap cruise lines with tens of thousands of dollars in fines for requiring passengers to show proof of COVID-19 vaccination—uncomfortably wedging the sector between a federal mandate and the state’s sensibility. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis signed a law earlier this month that banned bars, schools, restaurants and other businesses from asking customers whether they’ve been vaccinated against COVID-19. The law goes so far as to impose a fine of $5,000 per customer that is required to show proof of vaccination, and the governor hasn’t yet shown any signs of making a carveout for the cruise industry.

The Defense Department did not reveal a specific location, but it’s believed the test took place somewhere off the coast of Hawaii. The announcement of the test’s failure comes just one day after the Biden administration requested a fiscal 2022 budget of $8.9 billion for the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), down from its 2021 figure of $9.1 billion.(Snip) Perhaps adding insult to injury, a Russian naval surveillance ship

It’s because the theory was suppressed for more than a year by corporate media fact-checkers and their allies in Big Tech.The pages of The New York Times and The Washington Post have been filled with articles in recent weeks about the newfound potential legitimacy of the lab-leak theory. The theory posits that COVID-19 was accidentally released from the Wuhan Institute of Virology in China, potentially after being genetically engineered as a part of “gain-of-function” research.Evidence for the lab-leak theory has
