Are Workplace Vaccine Mandates Affecting Your Work Place?

We are entering into unchartered grounds with mandating employees to get vaccinated.  I asked this question a while back, “Does the rights of one trump a safe environment for many?”

It will be interesting to see how Work Safe reviews this.

Most Human Resource Specialists are running the other way from this question and referring it to Legal.  It does look like this will be settled in a Court of Law.

This is an article from Benefits Canada that speaks to future terminations of the unvaccinated.  The full article is linked here.

“Canada is facing a potential wave of terminations tied to mandatory workplace vaccine policies as a growing number of employers require workers to be fully inoculated against the coronavirus or risk losing their jobs, say legal experts.

Governments, institutions and companies have spent months hammering out vaccine mandates in a bid to curb an unrelenting pandemic fuelled by variants. As employer deadlines to be fully vaccinated approach, unvaccinated workers could soon be placed on unpaid leave or terminated altogether, say lawyers.”
