No Vermont state employees on unpaid leave for Covid non-compliance, Scott admin says

By Guy Page

Of the 1,100 state employees who have not attested Covid-19 vaccination, none are currently on unpaid leave for failing to comply with masking and testing requirements, a spokesman for Gov. Phil Scott said.

“To follow up on your question yesterday, the discipline for an employee to either 1) refusing to attest to being fully vaccinated, or 2) refusing to wear a mask at the worksite and undergo weekly COVID-19 testing, is to go on unpaid leave status. There are currently no employees on unpaid leave for violating this policy,” Press Secretary Jason Maulucci told the Chronicle today.

The Scott administration announced Sept. 15 all State of Vermont Executive Branch employees would be required to attest that they are fully vaccinated from COVID-19 or comply with mitigating measures.

At yesterday’s press conference, the Chronicle asked how many state employees are on unpaid suspension or indefinite leave due to not meeting mandatory attesting or testing, Gov. Scott said, “I am not sure at this point in time. I believe there have been over 86% who have attested to have been vaccinated. Which leaves us with 1100 who have not.”

According to an Oct. 1 Associated Press report, three University of Vermont Medical Center employees have resigned rather than submit to the vax-or-test policy. 250 are unvaccinated and undergoing weekly testing, 250 are partially vaccinated and undergoing testing, another 250 have not yet decided, and 12 have requested a religious exemption, the report said. 93% of employees are fully compliant.

  1. I think the worse thing to do if you are under the gun to take the “jab” is resign … make them fire you!

    Public or private sector, doesn’t matter. If sanity, real science, liberty, and common sense return to this country then they will pay for their malfeasance. If not, it won’t make a difference anyway.

  2. I;d be real interested if there’s any truth to the story that “State and federal representatives, thier families and staff, along with the “powers that be”, ie Scott, his buddy Biden etc are actually EXEMPT from any vax if they so choose, I mean anybody can fill a china flu bottle with saline and inject SALINE on national TV to con you into taking the jabs,,,

  3. If you take all the numbers the State has given us from the various departments around this flakedemic, they don’t match up to 100%.
    Something is fudgey in Mount Peculiar.

  4. The United States is becoming a HITLER country.. What’s next Gas chambers, firing squad? You must comply. You must do what we tell you to do or else. You must work and give us your money. We own you you are our servants.
    This is going on right now. The Elites can do what they want but we can’t. The little weasel Facui has made sure of that. Fauci has been wrong on so many things Yet Scott and Dr. Leavine think Fauci is the almighty lord. Fauci is nothing but an overpaid HACK.
    Stand up for your rights. If you want to get the Jab that’s your choice but if you don’t want it then that’s is your right.
    This is AMERICA we are supposed to be FREE AMERICANS. !!!!
