I recently got hired. I signed clearly that I decline the flue shot during the application proceed. I am being pressured now to take the flue shot. Can I be fired since I refuse to take it.
Yes, probably, unless you have filled out forms and provided supporting documentation of a religious or medical exemption. It will not matter that they hired you after you informed them that you would decline the shot---they didn't waive the requirement by hiring you.
Hello! DISCLAIMER AHEAD, PLUS A RECIPE. I hope my answer helps you, but please know that it is not legal advice. My answer is just an educated hunch, and nothing more, because I do not have all the facts in front of me, and there is no way to do that (nor should you) in a public post. To get my official Grade A legal advice, we need to talk in person, and I will probably have to look at documents related to your situation before I can give you an answer. SOME AVVO PRO-TIPS: the lawyers who answer your questions are not allowed to tell you to call us for more information or that we can take your case---we get banned if we do that. Also, lawyers have no mechanism to contact you privately either---we cannot Avvo-message you unless you message us first, and Avvo will not give us your contact info, even if we buy a high-priced membership. HOWEVER, if any of us have taken the time to answer your question it is not unreasonable to hope and/or assume that we may be interested in helping you. For this reason you are absolutely encouraged to message us through Avvo, and/or look up our contact information (on Avvo, Google, etc.) and follow up with some or all of us directly. [If you do this, please tell us which question we answered---again, Avvo tells us nothing if you message us privately after we've answered your question.] ONE LAST THING: even if every lawyer on Avvo---including me!---says that you do not have a case, do not take no for an answer! Again, we cannot possibly know everything we need to know to make that assessment definitively, and anyone who says otherwise is wrong for doing so. Consider what we say to be very useful tools for asking the right questions when you follow up in person, where an *employment lawyer* can hear all of the facts before they make a determination. Keep fighting for your rights, and don't stop until more than one employment lawyer tells you it's a lost cause. Good luck! Go get em. [Ps: there is no recipe. Just wanted you to read to the end so I can cheer you on to keep fighting. :) ]
Our Rating is calculated using information the lawyer has included on their profile in addition to the information we collect from state bar associations and other organizations that license legal professionals.
