Kansas Court Upholds Denial of Unemployment Benefits to Vaccine Objector


Kansas Court Upholds Denial of Unemployment Benefits to Vaccine Objector

Is an employee who was dismissed for refusing a flu vaccine entitled to unemployment insurance payments?

In many workplaces, especially hospitals, workers may be required to receive a vaccine against influenza or the flu as a condition of continued employment. There may be limited exceptions for religious or medical reasons, and some workplaces allow conscientious objectors to wear a mask as an alternative under so-called "vaccine-or-mask" policies. Many, however, insist on a vaccine.

Employers Sometimes Reject An Employee's Stated Medical Reasons

When a hospital employee in Kansas gave her employer a brief note from her doctor asking to "defer" her flu shot, the hospital did not accept it as a valid medical excuse.

How detecting the early symptoms of GBS can help your vaccine injury claim.

One of the primary functions of the immune system is to distinguish between the body and foreign agents, keeping the individual healthy and strong while at the same time attacking and destroying outside invaders.  Guillain-Barre syndrome (or GBS) is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body’s immune system malfunctions and begins attacking its own nervous system. In patients diagnosed with GBS, the myelin sheath that covers the nerves and assists with signal transmission is attacked during a process called demyelination. Unlike Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyneuropathy (or CIDP), the chronic form of the disease, GBS presents quickly and is frequently followed by some sort of infection or illness, and in some cases follows administration of a flu shot.  GBS following flu vaccination is marked by tingling and weakness in the arms and legs.  If left undiagnosed and untreated, severe forms of GBS may lead to whole body paralysis, hospitalization, or even death.
