Yesterday we saw yet another story of fake vaccination cards being sold.
In the early days, cards were sold in person for about $20. Now they are sold for as much as $200 on the internet.
With one vaccine now fully approved by the FDA, many employers are requiring employees to be vaccinated. It is safe to assume that some employees will attempt to circumvent this requirement by producing fake vaccination cards.
What should the discipline be in such cases? To find out, it helps to ask the question “Is this a breach of performance or a breach of trust?” A breach of performance is often easily remedied with training or a second chance. Not so for breaches of trust. In such cases, we need to ask ourselves “Can I trust this person again? Can I trust this person with the job I gave them? If they were willing to lie about this, what else could they be lying about? Am I allowing them to put others at risk?”
A breach of trust often leads to termination. Is your organization prepared to do so with fake vaccination card?
