EEOC Says Employers May Require Workers to Be Vaccinated

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) in guidance issued Wednesday said that requiring a test would not violate the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990.

From the Texas Trial Lawyers Association news release.

The New York Times reported that the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission issued guidance that employers “can require workers to get a Covid-19 vaccine and bar them from the workplace if they refuse.” According to the Times, the EEOC “said that requiring an employee to show proof of having gotten a Covid-19 vaccination would not amount to a disability-related inquiry.”

About This Blog

The title of this blog reflects my attitude toward those government agencies and insurance companies that routinely mistreat injured or disabled people. As a Dallas, Texas lawyer, I've spent more than 45 years trying to help those poor folk, and I have been frustrated daily by the actions of the people on the other side of their claims. (Sorry if I offended you...)
