I told them it was against my religion. If they ask me to leave can I collect unemployment?

Tell them that Trump never wears a mask either.

That should shut them up.

Need to contact an employment lawyer. But, if you live in a right to work state, and they deem it part of your uniform or PPE, then you wear it or get fired.

You can be terminated for anything. Now whether it was a wrongful termination is another story.

In this case, I find it hard to believe that you would sue anyone, because it's probably not worth the cost, and second, if you did, it would be very unlikely that a judge (or jury) would believe you.

From what I've read, if you say that you get panic attacks or hyperventilate or similar problem because of the mask, and you get fired, you can get unemployment.

Check into your state unemployment website. Here if you quit from health concerns due to CORVID-19 then you are still eligible for unemployment (and get the additional 600 on top of ui) with people of all ages dieing why risk it.

Why is a mask such a dealbreaker for you?

Doesnt make sense to me why you'd risk not having a job to go back to when unemployment stops

This is the thing, but I'm not so sure it will mater once unemployment stops. Might be nothing to go back to.

I guess I would think that for a little while people are going to have to give each other some slack.

If your employer wants masks for a while it could be because someone there is very scared still.

maybe work isn't the place to make an example.

do it in your personal life.

Some day when you are the boss you will be the one to make these sorts of decisions.

Until you are paying the rent and the paychecks, you really need to be flexible and sympathetic.

masks in surgery are okay. You don't want hairs or such dropping into the open wound of the patient on the table.

otherwise, fuck it.


I am learning how to do home peritoneal dialysis for a family member and that is my ONLY time in a mask.

masks in public collect germs and hold them under your nose.

they are Virtue Signalling, pure and simple.

let the sheep wear them.

sorry, not good enough

let the scaredy cat stay home, if he/she is more comfortable that way.

no one should have to breathe through chemical-treated paper or wet fabric all day just because a liberal is

Of course you can be terminated for not wearing a mask, if your boss tells you to wear a mask. In his mind, you're being careless about safety in the workplace, and that's a huge liability to him.

I'd just wear the fucking mask and make money and not worry about it.
