I work around majority male co workers making me the only female who works nights, and one female identifies as male. I did not know a male was in there until I heard a noise and checked.

I’m still able and required to fulfill the same job duties as my co workers but I’m being singled out from a significant raise due my religious exemption vs vaccination.
answered on Mar 30, 2022
It could be. How large is this employer? How many employees are there in total that received raises? Were your co-workers employees longer than you were with this company? Do they have the same type of job as you do? The employer must be able to articulate the reasons why you were not treated... Read more »

Yes. It would be viewed as a voluntary quit. Companies can mandate vaccines unless you have a medical or religious exemption.
According to our US Constitution, Federal and State Citied Laws, this is absolutely illegal and unlawful to require or lose your job.
answered on Jun 2, 2021
It is not unlawful for your employer to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine as a condition of employment. However, your employer is obligated to consider exemption requests if they are based on medical or religious reasons.

Reach out to an employment attorney in your state for a consultation. It sounds like this pay cut came right after you announced your pregnancy, and discrimination based on pregnancy is unlawful.

answered on Feb 19, 2020
Hi, the federal law governing medical leave, the Family Medical Leave Act ("FMLA") does not require the employer to give you *paid* leave. It protects your job if you take unpaid leave, however. One issue I see is whether or not your employer is covered by the FMLA. You state the employer... Read more »
