I’ve heard from a friend that Adobe is issuing an edict to all employees:
~”Get vaccinated or lose your job”.
Since when does an employer get to make personal medical decisions for you and demand that you take an Experimental Gene Therapy that is NOT APPROVED by the FDA? (An “emergency use authorization” is NOT a drug approval.)
Seems to me that a blanket “Everyone get the shot” is “Practicing Medicine Without A Licence”.
Then demanding proof of vaccination is “invasion of privacy”.
Then I’ve just got to ask: Is an Employer “HIPPA Compliant”?
Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA)
HIPAA Security Rule
The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) is a federal law that required the creation of national standards to protect sensitive patient health information from being disclosed without the patient’s consent or knowledge. The US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued the HIPAA Privacy Rule to implement the requirements of HIPAA. The HIPAA Security Rule protects a subset of information covered by the Privacy Rule.
If I don’t give my consent, does that put the Employer as violating HIPPA?
Then, if actually fired for wanting my private health information to stay private, can I sue for “Wrongful Termination”?
Then there’s that whole ADA – Americans With Disabilities Act thing.
When I have a tendency to a LOT of allergies and increased immune response, or have arthritis when the shot is known to have more side effect damage in folks with arthritis, and it is likely I’ll “have issues” from a jab: Is that not a “disability” that requires “reasonable accommodation”?
Sure seems to me like Adobe is wide open to $Millions of law suits on a whole lot of different grounds.
So where’s the Class Action Law Suit to shut down this practice? Anyone want to send this to a good Lawfare Firm? Like maybe:
I know one thing: I’ll not be buying any Adobe stock. When you decide to terminate the 25% to 45% of your employees most prone to thinking for themselves and evaluating data critically, your business will not do so well. When you decide to be coercive of employees, you do not get the best of the crop.
