Employment lawyer Bridget Smith has warned of possible job losses and legal action as the deadline for border workers to be vaccinated against Covid-19 nears, Stuff reports. By the end of April, all managed isolation and quarantine (MIQ) workers must be vaccinated. On Monday Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern reiterated that unvaccinated workers in MIQ facilities must now be moved on to low-risk roles. Smith said responsibility for managing MIQ workers ultimately lies with their employers, and that there is a possibility for people to lose their jobs and for legal action.
