Topic of the Week  Workplace Fairness COVID-19 Statement

For more than two decades, Workplace Fairness has advocated for the rights of workers and their safety on the job. For this reason, the organization encourages employees who do not have medical or religious restrictions to get vaccinated to protect themselves and others in the workplace and beyond.

At the peak of the pandemic, workers were put at risk by employers who resumed near-normal operations without enforcing workplace safety precautions such as social distancing and vaccine or testing requirements. Now, almost two years after it’s onset, workers are eager for proper protection and are advocating for their right to a safe workplace. Given the determination to get back to “normal,” it’s not surprising that we’re seeing a push for widespread vaccination. Since the introduction of the vaccine, only 1 positive case per every 5,000 fully-vaccinated individuals has been reported per week, providing evidence that vaccinated workers may be the only pathway back to working in person without increased risk.
