I was hoping they would not go this route, but they sent out an email saying vaccinated people do not need masks, and the dirty unvaccinated must wear masks. They expect us to use the honor system, but there is an abuse hotline set up to report people not wearing the yellow star, oops I mean mask If you don’t have the right papers. They insisted they have the right to ask for proof. I guess I should learn how to fake the vaccine card officially now. I’m just grateful I live in Florida and the majority of the folks are over the mask and probably won’t report me, but we’re nationwide company and there’s a lot of mask Nazis out there.

Replying to myself.

They can ask if you have been vaccinated. They cannot force you to share your PII with them. If anyone who is not certified to look at PII forces you to give them PII, sue them. If someone who is certified forces you to show that... stall, figure out some way to get the PII seen by someone whos not certified without you being the cause, then sue them.

My blue state governmental health agency I work for is not asking for proof for a reason.

Yeah, they can. They can also generally fire you if you refuse to answer.

Your healthcare employer is not asking for it because they’re a covered entity. If you don’t work in healthcare, you’re not a covered entity.

PII also literally includes things like your date of birth. The upshot of your argument is that an employer violates federal law by requiring an employee to give their birthday lol.
