I tried this and went to both - the partner discussion seemed to go nowhere (he didn’t want to hear it, made it clear he wasn’t the right person), HR was receptive and it led to a productive discussion (bumped the offer up, took the job).

Can someone explain the logic behind firms requiring masks only for unvaccinated employees? Transmission is the same whether you are vaccinated or unvaccinated, especially for the delta variant. The CDC’s website says that vaccinated individuals could “potentially” have lower transmission rates, but there’s no actual data to support this statement. It seems like a way for firms to encourage (instead of mandating) the vaccine but it ends up being a discriminatory practice. Thoughts?
