Labour Ministry Advises Employers To Follow Labour Laws & Disaster Risk Management Protocols
It has come to the attention of the Ministry of Labour and Social Security that workers are concerned by memos purportedly issued by employers mandating that they be vaccinated or
otherwise be asked to resign.
While the Ministry of Health and Wellness is encouraging persons to be vaccinated against the Covid 19 virus, vaccination remains a personal choice.
The Ministry of Labour and Social Security is therefore advising workers to refer to the Labour Division any action taken by an employer against them that may be deemed prejudicial to their
reluctance to being vaccinated.
