Many Utah employers are requiring testing for employees who have requested religious accommodation for the vaccine requirement.
Under SB2004, employers are required to PAY for testing.
I know many of you have been waiting in long lines for hours and hours each week, to fulfill this workplace requirement. This is a huge waste of resources–and a means of coercion.
Here is a letter to send to employers to inform them of the law:
It is impractical for me to continue to wait in long lines, for hours each week, to receive free county-provided testing. It is a waste of my resources and yours.
If you insist on continuing with the testing requirement, I will need to opt for in-home testing, or another testing mechanism that requires less time to complete.
Per SB2004, 2nd Session, 2021, employers are required to pay for any Covid-19 associated testing that is done as a requirement to be in the workplace.
Please inform me how you would like to proceed.
