Another sign of the times today as a COVID-19 mandate kicked in for MaineGeneral Health which dropped about 4% of it's workforce, or about 200 employees that did not comply with the mandatory vaccine mandate which required them to be fully vaccinated by the ned of last week according to a report by the Sun Journal.

All of the former employees indicated that the mandate was the cause of them separating from employment with MaineGeneral.

According to a spokesperson for MaineGeneral, Joy McKenna:

“Those who left us due to the mandate are split approximately half in clinical and half in non-clinical roles,”

BY making this personal choice, the Maine Department of Labor has said that if employees are fired or they quit due to refusing to comply with a mandatory covid vaccine requirement, they generally would not qualify for unemployment benefits.

Although not reported as of yet, other businesses, especially in the health care field have similar mandates. If they will follow through on the separations still remains to be seen.
