A private school with two campuses in Miami has warned its staff against taking vaccines that prevent COVID-19, saying it will not employ anyone who has been inoculated and spreading misinformation about the potential risks of vaccination.
Centner Academy, with campuses in the Design District and Edgewater, informed parents of its policy for teachers and staff by email on Monday. The announcement, first reported by the New York Times, left some parents, teachers and medical experts aghast because it was presented as fact without citing any scientific evidence.
More at the link, but you have to love this bit:
Unsatisfied with the schooling options available locally, they opened Centner Academy in the Design District in 2019 as the first “Happiness School.” The school’s website prominently displays: “MEDICAL FREEDOM FROM MANDATED VACCINES.”
The school has a chiropractor on staff to give adjustments to students and staff and practices meditation among students with the use of crystals.
So, the school sent forms to all staff for them to fill out, to declare their vax status and/or intentions, with threatening language should they lie. We know that lying to your employer is, in itself, generally accepted grounds for discipline up to and including termination.
What do the Great Minds Of The Dope suppose the courts will do with this?
Ms. Centner founded the school with her husband, David Centner, a technology and electronic highway tolling entrepreneur. Each has donated heavily to the Republican Party and the Trump re-election campaign, while giving much smaller sums to local Democrats.
Would firings for getting a vaccine be something that could be contested in court?
I was looking into a local news story where someone was fired (at will state) for refusing to be vaccinated. My understanding is that that firing would probably stand up in court, as the person fired didn’t even make an effort to claim religious or medical reasons to not get a shot.
But getting a shot, when public policy is to get as many out there as possible, is on the other side of that line. My boss can’t legally fire me for following the speed limit or following mandated reporter laws. But this isn’t a legally mandated vaccination, just encouraged. How does the law work on that?
I don’t think people like that drink Kool-Aid. I think they drink some kind of smoothie with wheat grass and dandelion leaves and shark cartilage. And they probably don’t even drink it, it is done as an enema to remove “toxins”.
