David, My employer recently e-mailed (I am in Chattanooga) — “There may be something coming out next week asking each employee to attest that he/she has been vaccinated, has not been vaccinated, or prefer to not answer.
We are now permitted to ask employees if they are or are not vaccinated.”
Of course, this is so they can tell who needs to wear a mask. Is this not a violation of the HIPPA law? They actually hired me by saying they WEREN’T allowed to ask. And this was 2 months ago. What are your thoughts? — C
Fight back, assert your rights.
Here are religious exemption documents.
Here is an employer form you submit to demand he indemnify you and assume liability in case you are harmed by any jab.
You could also use my affidavit about my lawsuit vs. Gov. Lee and Becky Barnes in HamCo where they admit they are involved in fraud. My suit has been in court 302 days, and Lee and Barnes have not avoided the fraud (meaning, turned away from violation of law, and coming into compliance with it).
A copy of the affidavit of admitted fraud is here. https://tntrafficticket.us/2021/01/harassed-facing-unlawful-demands-print-my-notice-assert-rights/
In my opinion, threatening to fire you violates the extortion statute in Tennesee.
Extortion (class D felony)
Tenn. Code Ann. § 39-14-112
- (a) A person commits extortion who uses coercion upon another person with the intent to:
- (1) Obtain property, services, any advantage or immunity;
- (2) Restrict unlawfully another’s freedom of action; or
- (A) Impair any entity, from the free exercise or enjoyment of any right or privilege secured by the Constitution of Tennessee, the United States Constitution or the laws of the state, in an effort to obtain something of value for any entity;
- (B) For purposes of this section, “something of value” includes, but is not limited to, a neutrality agreement, card check agreement, recognition, or other objective of a corporate campaign;
- (C) For purposes of this section, “corporate campaign” means any organized effort to unlawfully bring pressure on an entity, other than through collective bargaining, or any other activity protected by federal law.
- (b) It is an affirmative defense to prosecution for extortion that the person reasonably claimed:
- (1) Appropriate restitution or appropriate indemnification for harm done; or
- (2) Appropriate compensation for property or lawful services.
- (c) Extortion is a Class D felony.
Acts 1989, ch. 591, § 1; 2014, ch. 982, § 2.
Extortion is blackmail. In the typical case, an extortionist is one who threatens another for the purpose of obtaining money or property. The threat is often to do something unlawful. For example, Allen threatens Bob by saying “Give me $100,000, or I’ll kidnap your son.” The threat, however, need not be unlawful. Sometimes the threat may simply be “pay me $100,000, or I’ll tell your wife that you have been sleeping around.”
In Tennessee, a person is guilty of extortion if he or she uses “coercion” to obtain property, services, or advantage. A person is also guilty of extortion if he or she uses coercion to unlawfully restrict another’s “freedom of action.” Coercion is defined as a threat to
1) commit an unlawful act, 2) wrongfully accuse any person of an offense, 3) expose any person to hatred, contempt or ridicule, 4) harm the reputation of a business or person, or 5) take or withhold action as a public servant. Unlike many other jurisdictions, the extortionist need not actually receive the object or compel the action of the victim.
Extortion is a Class D felony. Incarceration ranges from two to twelve years, and fines may not exceed $5000.
