Asked in Employment Law and Civil Rights for District of Columbia

Q: If an employer "requests" that you complete a dd3150, are you legally obligated to complete and submit that form?

The form specifically states: "While the information requested on this form is intended to be used primarily for internal purposes, in certain circumstances it may be necessary to disclose this information externally. And 85 Fed. Reg. 17047 states that "Providing this information is voluntary. However if you fail to provide this information, you will be TREATED as not fully vaccinated."

This sounds like discrimination.

What are our legal rights?

Can the 5th amendment be invoked to protect privacy?

A: You do not have to sign the form. However, by not signing the form you can expect to be treated as not having been fully vaccinated. The policy is not discriminatory on its face if it is equally applied to everyone regardless of sex, race, national origin, religion or disability. It does not seem, from what you say, that the policy is discriminatory in any fashion.
