Philadelphia, PA asked in Employment Law for Pennsylvania

Q: Can you be terminated in a dental practice for refusing to take the covid 19 vaccination if you continue to wear PPE?

I'm wearing all my PPE, correctly, every single time and following all CDC and DOH guidelines, can my employer force me to get this rushed experimental vaccination? It's not even technically FDA approved. My body my choice should be a protected right of mine? And can they violate my HIPPA rights and tell patients if I choose not to vaccinate?

A: A Pennsylvania attorney could advise best, but your post remains open for three weeks. You could reach out to employment attorneys, or repost under the Employment Law category. There's no guarantee all posts are picked up, but attorneys in that area of law would probably have the most insight on this. Good luck
