Can You Be Legally Fired For Being At A Vaccine Mandate Protest? In B.c., It Depends
According to the CBC, a vaccine mandate protester in B.C. could be legally fired with cause, if their employer finds that their presence at a protest directly harmed the company's business interests, according to an employment lawyer.
It comes as numerous demonstrations against public health measures disrupted traffic across B.C. last weekend, with some of the protesters arrested for violent behaviour and "unlawful conduct."
The protests have also led to calls for counter action, with one of the trends arising on social media being a boycott of businesses whose vehicles were seen at them.
