(PatriotWise.com)- The federal Equal Employment Opportunity Commission just made an incredible suggestion that businesses can insist that their employees take the COVID-19 vaccine, and have the right to discriminate against people who do not take the vaccine, without breaking federal law.
It’s a shocking revelation that shows just how we have come since the days of equal opportunity and fairness.
Under the Americans with Disabilities Act, for instance, employers are banned from discriminating against workers based on a disability. That may mean that anybody who cannot take the vaccine for medical reasons may have protection, but any American worker who simply doesn’t want to take the vaccine or who have serious concerns about its safety may risk losing their job if they refuse to take it.
Guidance from the EEOC website published on May 28 says that employers should make “reasonable accommodations” for anybody who cannot take the vaccine for religious reasons or pregnancy.
Which is great for people with religious beliefs or who are pregnant, but what about people who are scared of taking a vaccine that was developed in a record-breaking time?
The new guidance shockingly reveals that under federal law, employers are allowed to require all employees to take a vaccine and to stop anybody who has not taken a specific vaccine from entering the workplace until they do so. It’s fine, the agency said, as long as they consider the provisions within the Americans with Disabilities Act and Title 7 of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
In other words, if you’re not pregnant, if you’re not religious, and if you don’t have a disability, it’s legal to discriminate against you and even deny you work opportunities if you don’t wish to take a vaccine.
