Unvaccinated workers are filing for wrongful dismissal — but lawyers say their chances are slim

Courts likely to prioritize public safety measures over the predicaments of terminated employees in most cases, say employment lawyers.

In 95, I trained as an EMT: there were vaccines required for this job even without a pandemic. So, it is not as if vaccine requirements are either new or burdensome unprecedented policy; same goes for students going to school.

Some people are just too stupid for their own good.

lawyers say chances are slim, but that wont stop their colleagues from trying anyways - as long as they are on retainer.

Morons lmao. My colleague was working the job of her dreams making an easy 70k. Anti vaxx, now someone with 1/​10th her experience has her job.

My brother in law is in on this. He was a teacher, but refuses to get vaccinated. He has a family of 6 kids (7th on the way) and a stay at home wife, yet threw away his career.

I know a friend of a friend who is trying to do this. She used to be a flight attendant and is fighting her dismissal. Went from a job she loved with great travel perks to working in a bakery, which she likes, but she wants her old job back. I have no idea how much of a chance she thinks she has at winning, but it doesn’t look good.

If you are choosing to not be an equal part of society than you should be treated as such.

I’ve heard from a few people that they’re neglecting to get or disclose their vaccine status so they can indefinitely work from home

Good luck with that lol. Couldn’t care any less about these morons than I already do. Zero sympathy. If you’re too selfish or stupid to fulfill your end of the social contract, you can fucking starve.

Besides, it’s not like anyone with two brain cells to rub together would actually want to interact with these dolts, never mind being forced to work with them.

I got fired because I broke my employer's rules. That doesn't seem fair.

So instead of looking for a new job they're waiting for a law suit that probably won't work - smart /s

So they’ll start clogging up the courts as well as the ICUs now?

When will these pieces of human trash stop clogging up services with their ignorance?

Amazes me how these people fail to realize your chocies have concequences. If I made a choice to put my coworkers in danger I would expect to be fired as well

My partner and I both work for pretty big corporations. Both our employers had a LOT of due diligence with their legal departments before they put in their vaccine policies (which do result in dismissal after some intermediate steps). They didn't want to get wrapped up in lawsuits so they made triple sure everything was rock solid.

So I wouldn't expect much out of this.
