This sounds like one giant lawsuit.

No harrassment investigation was completed and the employee is female.

This all sounds like one big harassment on a basis of medical condition. Can you clarify again - was she terminated for testing positive or for accusing another employee? Does the company have official policy about all of it?

The Assistant HR Manager issued a corrective action to my coworker about a month ago. Accused her of instructing a manager to call her by a preferred name and referenced sexual innuendo, then further stated she had asked a Manager if he needed a hug and deemed this as further being inappropriate behavior. No investigation was completed. As you can imagine as an HR professional she was completely humiliated and deflated by this situation. Last week the same coworker, along with everyone else on our team was sick with the same symptoms. She was sent out by the assistant manager Tuesday and was told she must go test. Her test came back positive, they sent myself and one other specialist to also get tested. We all tested positive. Meanwhile, they offered two of us the opportunity to work from home while denying her the ability and terminated her today accusing her of infecting our entire department. The assistant manager has continued to go into the building sick.

I would immediately report this company to the county health dept for unsafe protocols.

Our daily certifications state that you may terminated if you do not answer truthfully.

You all went to work, in-person for a week straight with cold-like symptoms during a pandemic? I hope you see how irresponsible that is. Who made that decision?

Always thought I would be with a NYC guy on fun, fancy dates in my future. Realizing now that everyone wants casual there, and in my hometown (here for covid), I make significantly more than most guys I go on dates with, many haven’t gone to college, but we have more similar interests and they are interested in a serious relationship. It feels like I’m settling and I’m so jealous of the people who do have the fun, exciting life in the city I dream of.
