Dartmouth College Requiring COVID Vaccination for Employees Working Remotely

Dartmouth College Requiring COVID Vaccination for Employees Working Remotely

“must submit proof of vaccination or be approved for a medical or religious exemption by Dec. 8”

Isn’t this a bit extreme? If a person is working remotely, why should it even matter?

CBS News in Boston reports:

Dartmouth College Requires Remote Employees Be Vaccinated

Dartmouth College is requiring employees working remotely to be vaccinated.

The Valley News reports that the college expanded its vaccine mandate. It already required that employees who access Dartmouth facilities be fully vaccinated or have a medical or religious exemption.

All Dartmouth employees, including those who have been approved for fully remote work, must submit proof of vaccination or be approved for a medical or religious exemption by Dec. 8, Scot Bemis, Dartmouth’s chief human resources officer, said in an email to employees.

Students are also already required to be fully vaccinated unless they obtained an exemption.

DONATE

Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.

Comments

Let me guess….Dartmouth College administration believes that computer viruses are transmissible to humans?

Students need to go on leave, defer, or quit these supposedly academic institutions.

And employees need to quit.

Dartmouth College has the right to impose this requirement. It would be easier than having a bureaucratic clearing process before each employee is called into the campus for a meeting. Employees might be called upon on short notice to perform job duties involving face-to-face contact with students or the public. Finally, Dartmouth might want to avoid future increases in its health insurance rates. They have the right to issue their own HR policies, and each employee or prospective employee has the right to not work at Darthmouth if they don’t like the overall salary and HR policies.
