In finding that the dismissal was justified, the authority rejected the applicant’s argument that their stance on vaccination “does not impact any other person in the workplace”.
The authority held that this was unsustainable given that every employee has an obligation under the Health and Safety at Work Act to take “reasonable care that his or her acts, or omissions do not adversely affect the health and safety of others”. — Susan Hornsby-Geluk
Anyone working in healthcare or education that is not fully vaccinated after 1 Dec & 1 Jan will not longer be employed. It won't be difficult to manage, its the law. — E Baxter
I have a client who as a contractor has now been required to "show evidence" of staff being fully vaccinated in order to be on site.

A sick staff member would mean a full shutdown, brand damage, customer relationship damage, ability for staff to earn a living etc. — Michael Wilson
