Employees fired for not getting flu shots (KTRK)

Fired for not getting a flu shot - dozens of employees at a Minnesota-based health care provider are considering legal action after it happened to them.

Essentia Health told employees the flu shot was mandatory unless they had a religious or medical exemption.

The company said it was for the safety of patients. Most employees got the flu shot; however, more than 50 did not and were fired.

ABC11 has decided to slowly reduce the number of stories on the website that have a comments section. We believe very strongly that our audience should have an opportunity to discuss and debate events in our world, however, we have not been able to moderate the comments as well as we would like. Instead of hosting a platform that could allow a few loud and ugly voices to dominate a conversation, we want to encourage everyone to join us on our social media platforms and speak out there.
