You know one of the key rules in today’s HR world is to make sure when an employee leaves, to end on a high note. Why anger an employee as the door is closing?
If you mandate any vaccination, you are bound to lose employees who will not be pleased with the company’s latest decision. The exiting employee may view the decision as yet another reminder that you really only give lip service to caring about an employee’s opinion or health.
Let me ask you. Can you come up with a way to end the employee/employer relationship over mandating a COVID-19 “vaccine” without angering your employee? Are you sure a separation package will do it? And if you are offering up a decent package, are you confident others won’t leave as well?
The easy answer: do NOT force employees to take a COVID-19 “vaccine.”
In fact, don’t whisper it’s under consideration. Do you really want your employees flocking to plaintiffs’ attorneys over labor and employment issues? Even if the law is on your side regarding the “vaccine,” are you confident your house is clean?
And who needs another angry employee posting on Glass Door and other internet sites about how management doesn’t care about what employees think?
If you want your employees to get vaccinated, give them time off to take the shot and to recover if they have adverse reactions.
