Employer Ordering Mandatory Vaccinations – Is This Legal?
A Houston hospital is asking all employees to get the COVID-19 vaccine or risk dismissal from their position as healthcare workers. Houston Methodist, which has claimed that over 80 percent of its workers have already received the vaccine, says that patient safety is their Number 1 concern, which is why they are pushing for mandatory vaccination. This directive flies in the face of various legal statues and may be termed as illegal under certain circumstances.
