I was skimming through the news headlines and came across a story that caught my attention.  At first, I thought it was a typo, so I took a second look.  Nope, no typo. The headline reads "Federal agencies prepare to act against unvaccinated employees"

So what does that mean for Montanans?  Does it mean that you can lose your job?  Does it mean that you have to get the vaccine if you want to continue to be employed? Can the government even do such a thing?

All great questions and frankly, questions that everyone should be asking.

According to the article, which was published in The Hill, it appears that the focus is on those with federal jobs.  In fact, that article states that the firings and suspensions of federal workers were postponed until after the new year.

So where is the focus as far as federal jobs?

According to the article, certain departments within the federal government are being targeted.  The article states "The departments of Treasury, Transportation, and Agriculture, as well as the General Services Administration, Social Security Administration, and Nuclear Regulatory Commission, are all expected to begin suspending employees who are not complying with the mandate in the coming weeks."

This is such an explosive topic, with many Montanans on both sides of the fence.  It all comes down to this, can your employer tell you what to do with or inject into your body?

For many, that answer would be "No".

So, if you choose not to get the vaccine, can your employer then terminate you? I'm certainly not a legal expert, nor do I claim to know and understand the laws when it comes to employee/employer. However, if you find yourself in that situation, I would recommend that you contact a lawyer so that you're fully aware of your options.
