Part 2 – What if an Employee Refuses on the Basis of a Human Rights Ground?
This part of our Employer Guide delves into protected human rights grounds, such as disability, age, religion, sex, etc., that an employee can raise to refuse the vaccine – as contrasted with an employee’s personal preference to refuse the vaccine, and who is liable if the employee becomes seriously ill or dies from the vaccine.
The following questions are answered:
- What reasons should you accept for refusal of the vaccine?
- What proof of a Human Rights ground can you accept? Can you question it?
- How far do you have to go to accommodate a request for refusal?
- What is undue hardship?
- What personal reasons do you not have to accept?
- When can you terminate an employee for refusing the vaccine and avoid a lawsuit?
- Who is liable if an employee gets sick or dies from the vaccine?
