HR threatening me with “separation” over COVID testing
Live and work in Florida. Obviously we have a strong leader as Governor who is supporting and protecting employees from vaccination damage. My HR department has been enforcing the OSHA mandate since last week which means I must provide a certified COVID test result each week at my expense to be able to work. I am a literal rock star with the owner and my team at this company for over 10 years. The customers that I have worked for have sent glowing emails and testimonials on my behalf. So basically I am being blacklisted now over refusing testing and threatened with “separation”. I caved in to testing last week as an out of town job had already been scheduled with per diem and paid hotel stay. Now I have a respiratory infection, wicked ear infection, and Laryngitis. Had to go to Urgent Care for drops snd antibiotics again at my expense and can’t be paid sick days because I’m not COVID tested this week! I have voiced my reasoning (including my wife’s heart condition) to avoid testing centers as obviously infected individuals are there putting us at risk. I tested negative and was perfectly healthy. 36 hours after testing I became sick with chest congestion and now full blown ear infection and Laryngitis. Coincidence? Hardly. Worked 77 hours last week while sick to complete the project and there has been ZERO empathy or care of my concerns, efforts, and now illness that THEIR policy has caused. Now I am threatened with termination. The SCOTUS had better decide Thursday according to law and the Constitution and not fake news and propaganda or I’m fucked……

Huh? They can be sued for 5$ each time they ask you for your vaccination status…

Re: HR threatening me with “separation” over COVID testing
My wife has been working remote/home for 2 years, her company wants weekly testing even though she hasn’t stepped foot in a company owned facility in two years. Her employer just keeps saying “no employee is remote.”

These HR departments are run by f’ing idiots, she asked for religious exemption and HR replied back with “we aren’t requiring you take the vaccine, just the weekly testing” but in their original email it states “you can seek religious exemption from mask, testing and vaccine” lol.

Just FYI, religious exemption can cover weekly testing as well.

Re: HR threatening me with “separation” over COVID testing
If you're the "rock star" it suggests you can't be replaced easily if at all.

So why would they threaten you with "separation"?

The implication is that either you can be replaced pretty easily or that you're not the star you've been led to believe you are.

I’m not even sure a Florida company will be able to do ANYTHING regarding the osha mandate…

It is a fine, punishable up to 5k for each infraction.

YOU CANNOT ASK SOMEONE FOR THEIR VACCINE STATUS IN FLORIDA.

Just report the company, or post the company here and I will report them.

 Quoting: Haitian Born


You keep calling it a 'vaccine'

It's not a vaccine.

It offers zero protection from getting infected (CDC, Pfizer CEO, others have already admitted this), and it offers zero protection from spreading it to others.

AT BEST (it's unproven) it MAY be a therapeutic IF it actually reduces the severity of infection.

Regardless, it's not worth the risk of all the verifiable health problems it causes.

Strange that businesses refuse to use the word fired when it comes to the vaccine.

Re: HR threatening me with “separation” over COVID testing
Options OP:

1. Report them under the statute that was passed in the summer of 2021 saying that businesses cannot ask for vaccination status… this was worded a bit open, most imply it’s only for employees but I would say the law can be interpreted many ways…

2. In November 2021 another statute was passed forcing businesses to accept religious exemptions. So they MUST accept your exemption.

3. Right of refusal under EAU. I posted the link above, under EAU they MUST MUST MUST give you the right to refuse… it’s not a question…

The only reason these businesses are doing this is because the employees don’t know their own rights…

Stand up for yourself.

Office space, internet (if needed for work), electric, water, and whatever else a workplace would provide. Some that have gone to mostly remote workers have been giving compensation.

OP, I was tested a few times in 2020 and yes you can have complications. On my last test I have had issues with Vertigo. Never had vertigo before in my life, but for a while was having issues, 2x full blown vertigo and a few times where I could feel I might get it so started taking meds. My sinuses and ears had fluid. I know they went too far in one nostril, it hurt for weeks.
