This would be the week to pick them up only 38%, a legion, Yahoo! And one thing to consider as well in talking about Washington. You said Alex, Miss, not the same guy agreed.

This is the week to picked up because Hey, man, the bills are an offensive, you know, not powerhouse, but they're pretty damn potent on offense. If the Niners even if the Niners lose the game, But hold the bills, too, I would say under 21 points if it's if it's a low scoring tight game, and, um, I think that the statement will be made. Is Josh Allen is having a hell of a year. And if they can not shut him down, but quiet him. Ah, little bit than then. Yeah, I think there'll be a big time pick up next week.

Can your employer force you to get a COVID-19 vaccine?

"Get the cove in 19 vaccine. Cairo seven looks into that. Have more of a fear that people won't get vaccinated. Todd owns a business and as soon as the covert vaccine becomes readily available, he's telling all of his employees to get one. My gut feeling is you need to I would definitely hire someone that was willing to take it over something that wasn't And if you're wondering whether a job can make you take the covert vaccine or fire you if you don't simple answer to the question is Yes, but there were so many exceptions. Seattle employment Attorney Tim Emery says. There really are no loss stopping work places from making the covert vaccine mandatory. In fact, Washington's an at will employment states so employers can fire workers with no warning and no cost their employers in Washington state right now. That require vaccines across the board. I can think of multiple employers that too, But, he says, In many ways, the covert vaccine is uncharted territory, So it's unclear how the legality of it all will play out. There's no question that an employer can require masks, There's no there's no question that employer can require the safety precautions, but but I don't think there's an easy answer in this situation for whether an employer could mandate Vaccine. The reason there's no easy answer is because he says, there are many exceptions for things like religious beliefs. If you have a medical condition, or even if you're under contract, it's a tricky one. Sandra from Seattle supports the covert vaccine but doesn't know if employers should require one. Everybody doesn't have the same situation, leaving experts expecting a lot of legal challenges. Once this vaccine is available employers one point used to be able to used to have the right to take genetic testing. I mean, the law really is in flux here. Oh, wow, An influx law. So he said, Yeah, you will eat they will be able to require, But then he said, Yeah, I don't know if they will. He seems a little on the fence about that attorney. I thought Yeah, well, nobody knows we haven't had to do something like this, I guess And long enough since the laws of sort of evolved to protect the employees from the aggressive employer and in this case, I guess they don't have it in, uh, the individual of the rights of the individual. To their own body. Can the employer say in order to work for me and to guarantee the protection of my other employees? I'm gonna have you have to get this vaccine. Yeah, That's the tricky part because obviously, employers can make you where other safety equipment When I worked in a big commercial bakery. I had to wear a hair net just to keep my hair from falling into the donuts right now. Can you imagine and all those guys have Bucky's Where those blue rubber gloves, right? Yes.
