This is for extra sick days they started doing for Covid. Shocker… employees were abusing it and ended up "getting Covid multiple times."

Now, only the clean (vaccinated) are eligible for additional freebie days off.

I'm all for them getting rid of additional days off for a cold, but it needs to be applied to everyone equally if they keep it. Not picking winners and losers.

Has anyone asked them how vaccinated people need time off for catching Covid…. since, well, they are vaccinated.

Is the result that the sick unvaccinated people have to come in to work?

I'm sure the state can fix this once it gets out of hand.

This needs to be done away with for everyone, now. If it's cool for covid positive healthcare workers to go to work why is it a problem for anyone else?

It makes sense. Why would you extend this benefit to someone who doesn't bother to even care or try to avoid covid? Remember covid is the disease, not the infection.

How is that legal? If you are granted sick days by your employer and are sick, how can they not pay you?

Seems like that would be a softball in court. But maybe not.

Covidian is such a beautiful faith. No need for logic or compassion, just a healthy fear of death and ****ting on other people based on an ineffective experimental gene therapy

Maybe because the shot is getting people sick, and some people don't want to chance it?

Maybe because some people already had covid, and they don't need the shot?

The shot has become a religion for so many.

This is additional Covid specific sick days that are being granted based on vaccination status.

STV thinks it's a good idea to deny benefits to those with wrong-think.

This does make sense. Why extend this benefit to someone who isn't willing to take the simple measure of getting a safe, effective free vaccine?

Now do fats/smokers/gerbils - sure, if there was a safe, effective, free vaccine for those conditions, I'd say they're equivalent. They obviously are not.

Slacker bums are going to find a way to be slacker bums and fake sick days. You either let actual sick people stay home no matter how they got Ill along with the fakers, or you pressure them to go to work while symptomatic and spread it around to coworkers just to force the slacker bums to come in and find ways to not work at the job site.

Vaccination of not, everyone is getting and spreading CoVID now. The idiotic delusion that vaccination policy will suppress spread needs to be thrown out so effective and coherent illness management policies can be used.

It's my understanding these are additional sick days just for covid, not the base sick days the employees would normally accrue. So if the county is taking on the additional expense to provide this unearned benefit, the employee should at the very least do their part to avoid needing them.

Exactly. This is basically a company offering a 401k match and the employee wanting the match but refusing to have any pay of their own deducted.

The vaccine for being fat is watching what you eat and exercising. The vaccine for smoking is not smoking.

Both of those have significantly lower risks than the Covid vaccines. If it's all about what is safe, effective, and free then wouldn't it make more sense to deny benefits to fats, smokers, and drinkers?

So what if they test positive but aren't sick. Should they get the sick leave because they have to quarantine?

Thanks for clarifying.

That's BS. I guess they would just prefer to have sick people come into work instead. Don't they realize that is what will happen? -rhetorical question.

Just when I think people cannot get any dumber, I read the news...

So they cannot fire your for being trans/gay, but they can deny your sick time for not being vaxxed?
So strange about lifestyle choices.

You really don't have a clue do you? Tons of people test when exposed. Certain companies and government entities will test people for contact tracing up to 7 days after exposure.

Incoherent reasoning.

Are the days off extra vacation days? No! They are an as needed accommodation to allow I'll employees to stay away from healthy ones without suffering an undue burden. Sick days are intended to keep the workplace functional without driving off employees or encouraging them to work while ill and concealing it.

if you remove them from the people somewhat more likely to become ill, you pressure them to come in while ill, which is the opposite of the intended purpose.

And their information regarding the efficacy of vaccination is obviously months behind. It is a stupid and ideologically spiteful policy.

It makes zero sense.

The vaccine does not prevent anyone from getting Covid.

The vaccine does not prevent the spread of Covid.

If infected, the quarantine time is the same whether you are vaccinated or not.

Goalpost moved. You asked why would people not suck test. I explained why they would.

But to answer your question they were as of two months ago in some departments. I haven't checked back lately.

I know this will come as a complete shocker, but politicians and Covidians alike are extremely stupid people(as is proven on this very thread).

The message that this sends to those that have not yet been vaccinated is that if you GET the shot, you will need additional sick time. If you do NOT get the shot, then you won't need that extra sick time.

In essence, they are advertising that the vaccine will make you sick!

You were fat. It was your fault. You shouldn't have been allowed time off since you clearly didn't care about your health.
