Intel has some very smart lawyers. They are well aware that there are medical privacy laws passed by Congress such as HIPAA. There are labor laws and union contract laws that have an impact. There are medical malpractice and ethics laws that enforce generally accepted practices and procedures. There is also the all important Nuremberg Code. No executive order by Biden can overturn those laws.
The Supreme Court uses Strict Scrutiny for those who have a religious, conscientious or medical exemption for a vaccine or any other medical procedure. On top of that there is also the Religious Freedom Restoration Act which was passed by Congress.
Even though the corpomedia is barely reporting it, lawsuits naming a religious exemption to the poke are winning across the country. Eventually the Supreme Court is going to uphold such laws. Those companies who violate them are going to find themselves sued for civil rights violations and corporate lawyers giving bad advice are going to get sued for malpractice so says famed trial attorney Robert Barnes.
Intel is not requiring the poke and is forbidding management from even asking their employees about their vaccination status.
It gets better, Intel’s quarantine procedures recognize having natural immunity the same as having the poke (section 1.2).
Hat Tip Alex Berenson!
According to the judicial order, which could be the first of its kind in the country against a coronavirus vaccine mandate, United Airlines is prohibited from placing employees with religious and medical exemptions on unpaid leave until October 26 while litigation continues. The judge also prohibited the airline from denying any employee requests for religious or medical exemptions. Previously, the airline did not allow employees to apply for an exemption after August 31.
