Newspager Sarah Loates says the ‘jabbed versus not jabbed’ debate is a massive HR nightmare that is already starting to unfold on the front line of business, e.g. jabbed employees refusing to work with those not jabbed, and the ‘not jabbed’ seeing their jabbed colleagues as a risk to them.
Sarah says the whole thing is made so complex because it's underpinned by different protected characteristics, e.g. pregnancy or fertility, religion (if the jab has gelatine products), disability (if you have an auto-immune disease,) age (if you are under 17) — and on top of that ANY employee can automatically claim unfair dismissal with no qualifying period if they think their workplace places them in clear and imminent danger and their employee does not take steps.
In short, is there a massive HR headache ahead?
