Last Christmas I got no respect. In my stocking, I got an Odor Eater. –Rodney Dangerfield
CAN YOUR BOSS REQUIRE YOU TO VACCINATE?
With the wonderful news of the approval of vaccines, some people are not convinced that they will take it. So then, can your workplace tell you that you must take it? The short answer appears to be yes. But while there is not a universal answer, nonetheless we know that mandatory vaccines are nothing new. Schools have for years demanded them as a condition for study. And those in health care have experienced the same. So it probably isn’t a stretch that after such a pandemic as we’ve experienced that an employer can mandate such for employment in order to protect its work areas. (Religious beliefs & disabilities under ADA may be exemptions.) We do expect some guidance soon from the EEOC, and the Beagle will keep you advised.

A hot-shot civil rights lawyer in New York got in a verbal tussle with a NYPD Sgt.: When he tried to serve papers on the PD, the Sgt grabbed his pen. Nonetheless, the hot-shot sued & took them to trial! Writing for the Court, the Judge said: “Once upon a time, we urged people not to make too much of real but petty grievances by saying, ‘Don’t make a federal case out of that'”. She then awarded $2.00!
Here’s a money-saving tip for Christmas: Glue a jujube on a brick & mail it out as a fruitcake. –Julie Brown
WHEN MY GYM IS CLOSED, AM I STILL LIABLE TO PAY?
An often asked question with apparent answers depending on state law. The first thing to do is to call your club to see if they amicably will suspend your membership, as they will want you back. And ask for written confirmation. If that doesn’t work, send a notice of cancellation via certified mail.
And if the club sends you to collections, know that Illinois law does not allow an assignment by physical fitness centers. (815 ILCS 645/8) In fact, it says: ” Such an assignee is not a holder in due course.”
The Supreme Court ruled against a nativity scene in Washington DC. This wasn’t for any religious reasons. They just couldn’t find 3 wise men and a virgin. –Jay Leno
