  1. Deservedly or not, certain stories capture the nation’s attention. Laci Peterson, Amy Fisher, Jon Benet Ramsey.
  2. I don’t think I’ve taken a firm stand on the issue. I do agree that the restaurant owners have the right to refuse service in this instance. I also think they are ridiculous.
  3. Yeah, like you, my kid was pledging a fraternity while taking Calc 3. Ended up dropping it and is retaking it this semester. Seems to be going much better.
  4. I don’t have the time to create my own list but am anxiously awaiting yours. As a result, my request for further clarification on this point (I raised it originally) is I’m sure both unnecessary and annoying. But with respect to the list, you have the albums listed next to the song. So I would presume that we’re talking about the song as it appeared on that album. Well, Bad was released on two different albums and to me, the Wide Awake version is superior. So by listing UF next to Bad are you saying that we’re ranking that studio version, but can bump it up our own list if there are other versions we enjoy more? Or is the list simply of the songs (in whatever iteration) and the album references are not relevant at all to the ranking?
  5. For what it’s worth, here’s what SHRM has to say about the topic. I would think that most employers who are implementing a vaccine requirement policy would have communicated it to employees before firing them (and probably given them a grace period to get vaccinated), but that certainly may not be the case for all.
  6. Depends on the nature of the suit. And I think you are way overestimating the importance of paperwork provided to the employee at the time of firing.
  7. It is neither incompetent nor malicious to fire someone without a termination letter, particularly if it is on the spot. Often, the termination letter is mailed after the fact (if at all, which is not required).
  8. All good questions. The forthcoming OSHA regulatory guidance should hopefully address these details.
  9. I think this is a reasonable position. I’m not sure how practical it is though. Would folks be required to take antibody tests and then disclose medical records to their employers showing current immunity levels? Would they need to periodically retake the tests so that declines in immunity levels are monitored? Is there a way to detect if these natural immunity levels are delta-resistant? If a practical approach to documenting natural immunity is available, I wouldn’t have an issue with it.
  10. They did this in the Houston area at one of the first hospital systems to require vaccine mandates. An insufficient number of employees walked out to make a difference.
  11. Maybe I need to go back and rewatch, but I recall the guy unambiguously saying “You’re terminated.” People in the corporate environment don’t generally use the words “you’re fired.”
  12. Termination letters aren’t required by any law that I know (maybe there is a collective bargaining contract on point), and I’m not sure what legal hot water the hospital would be trying to stay out of. The employee clearly asserted that her objection was based on her belief that she should have a choice. She didn’t raise any request for accommodation due to religious or medical reasons.
  13. Is she Union? If not, it’s at will employment and the hospital has the right to terminate her employment. I don’t understand her saying that she hasn’t quit and she hasn’t been fired. From the video, she’s clearly been fired.
  14. First, I want to thank all of you for your years-long support of Chance for Hope Foundation, a charity founded by my wife and me to honor the legacy of our son Chance who passed away from brain cancer at the age of 13. This charity provides support services to children with cancer and their families in the form of free temporary housing in one of our five apartment residences for children from all around the world traveling to Texas Children's Hospital or MD Anderson for cancer treatments, free meal deliveries to pediatric cancer families on the inpatient floors at those hospitals, an annual dance for teens with cancer, and a back to school gift card drive. We have also funded $425,000 in medical research grants in an effort to improve treatment protocols and one day find a cure for childhood cancer. In conjunction with our annual gala (coming up on September 23rd), we always have a raffle that is open to all (attendance at the gala is not necessary). Our raffle has had amazing support in the past from the posters here at FBGs and we hope you will once again participate.
