A Useful Suggestion

H1N1 and the regular flu are a big concern these days, and with a struggling economy people are coming to work instead of staying home risking the possibility of infecting co-workers, customers and or visitors. We should make public health policies that are fair and reasonable for both the employee and the employer.

For those who are part time and do not get benefits, the employer should cut checks for those who get a flu vaccine up to the fair reasonable retail price at a pharmacy that is local to the business office of the employee. If the employee takes the vaccine and if the chance they get infected with the flu they would need to go to the doctor to get a note and they would have up to 1 week with no penalty non-paid time off.

Democratic Party legislators want to provide paid time off, but that is tough for businesses these days, but at least offering reimbursement for flu vaccines would be the next best option.

This would be a fair and reasonable compromise. Workers would not infect other workers and decrease loss of productivity.
