re: Vaccine Mandate Does Not Exist! - Mac Power
[quote]Government civilian[/quote] I just read a new memo from my unit after missing yesterday's deadline for the first shot of the Pfizer vaccine. It still talks a tough game, but fails to outline exemption procedures. They did include language about weekly testing being an option for the unvac...

re: Will people fired for no vax ever get their jobs back - Mac Power
It depends on the company and what your employment agreement is. I'd recommend getting as much in writing as possible. Companies are sloppy over this right now and if you can't get a job back, having documentation will help a lot if you want to explore legal options. ...

[quote]every agency has a process for it, but most personnel don't know them[/quote] You can say that again. My command doesn't know ours and can't tell who to talk to. I do have to question it if the process is turning medical info over to HR. If it's just a doctor's note to HR, I dont see h...

[quote]Lmao! I call bull shite on them. There have always been processes for submitting exemption requests[/quote] I'm not so sure about this. What's the process for submitting a medical exemption? I'm trying to think of a time or scenario the government would need medical information from someon...

re: Federal Vaccine Mandates - Mac Power
Yeah, I hear ya. That has to be tough. I think this has the potential to snowball as well. My HLR is as conservative as they come. Very Anti-mandate. He got vaccinated because he is in the risk category, but has come around to hate the idea of boosters and has enough common sense to see thi...

re: Federal Vaccine Mandates - Mac Power
[quote]When did they decide to stop collecting? We had similar documentation in the form of an electronic form that immediately ceased use upon issuance of the EO. Now, attestation isn't enough--you have to provide medical records proving you are vaccinated. I know guys that have flat out said...

re: Federal Vaccine Mandates - Mac Power
[quote] Oh, trust me, I know. It's why so many lazy people are still in the government. I've said countless times that you could damn near kill a guy and still not get fired. But if you just flat out refuse to get the vaccine and aren't applying for an accommodation, I don't see how much more fu...

[quote]A lot of companies are not offering testing in lieu of for this reason. So yes, it was most likely a "budgetary" decision.[/quote] You've got to love the government. They put together a task force and wrote up a 10 page testing document, just to scrap it when they do the math behind the S...

re: Federal Vaccine Mandates - Mac Power
All that to add NOV 22nd is still the "deadline". If the Agency is mandating Pfizer or Maderna, the deadline to start the process to be fully vaccinated by the 22nd is Oct 18th. So it's almost crunch time....

re: Federal Vaccine Mandates - Mac Power
[quote]Unless they scraped it before September 9, they didn't scrap it for budget reasons. They scraped it because they were told to. Most agencies never implemented testing because they couldn't make it work. Several agencies were apparently holding out on the attestations while "waiting for mor...

re: Federal Vaccine Mandates - Mac Power
[quote]It amazes me when I read this, because my agency has been very clear on deadlines and attestation requirements. Hell, they even laid out when you needed to have the different shots by in order to meet the November 22 deadline. How they will handle those accommodation requests is another qu...

re: Federal Vaccine Mandates - Mac Power
I'm a federal DoD worker who remains unvaccinated. Our office has implemented and scraped two separate plans for the mandate. Both are appearing to get held up by the federal lawyers. It's rumored to be because Corminady isn't available yet. Pfizer playing the legal name game with it's product h...
