The EEOC’s guidance says that employers can require employees to receive a COVID vaccine and even offer incentives for vaccination.
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said that businesses can require their employees to get a COVID vaccine without violating federal law.
In addition, the EEOC said that businesses can offer incentives to employees to get vaccinated “as long as the incentives are not coercive.”
“Federal EEO laws do not prevent an employer from requiring all employees physically entering the workplace to be vaccinated for COVID-19, so long as employers comply with the reasonable accommodation provisions of the ADA and Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and other EEO considerations,” the EEOC guidance says. “Other laws, not in EEOC’s jurisdiction, may place additional restrictions on employers. From an EEO perspective, employers should keep in mind that because some individuals or demographic groups may face greater barriers to receiving a COVID-19 vaccination than others, some employees may be more likely to be negatively impacted by a vaccination requirement.”
Dr. Fauci took away your First Amendment rights during the pandemic.
But relied on the First Amendment to write his new book. https://t.co/n8I5YN8C3R

Health care decisions should be made by each individual person. A pandemic shouldn’t be an excuse to restrict the freedoms of Americans.
Government leaders, especially in Democrat-led places, have used COVID-19 as a reason for taking away our freedom. Now, as we approach the end of the pandemic, we must continue to fight to stop their overreach.
