I would hope even a religious based agency wouldn't take religion into account during the hiring process.

I hope it does if it's a private service.

If you roll into Christus Health and talk about your side gig as a satanic worshipper, that's an issue.

Granted, that's extreme and unlikely.

But I doubt they'd ask about your prayer life or beliefs anyway.

And why would that be an issue? You probably shouldn't bring up your religious beliefs during an interview, but employers certainly shouldn't discriminate based on religious beliefs.

Everything may be falling, but it all could be getting ready to reassemble in a new configuration, just waiting for all the pieces to be ready. (Yeah, I know, it's optimistic...)

The Covid Vaccine thread has a lot of that information.
That pretty much just asks people whether or not they will get it and their feelings about the vaccine. I guess I'll look for a thread about the second dose and what some may have experienced after. I didn't see any comments like that on the thread you provided.

Several of the more recent posts detail members getting the vaccine and their side effects.

.because I thought the point was to fit into the culture of the place you're working and empllyers aren't going to want to hire someone who would make such a disturbance?

Speaking of personal beliefs, the guiding force in my life seems to be entropy. It's rather a relief to be nonreligious at this point, because I don't have to ask why a higher power made my life the way that it is, I just recognize that sometimes things are meaningless and you either choose to move forward and keep fighting or you give up. That is the most important choice in life. That and the kind of person you fight to become.

Need I remind anyone I'm not in HR for good reason?

Just remember that you can't harass your coworkers over religion or other protected classes (for legal reasons) and choose to stand up to anyone you see doing that (for ethical reasons) and you're good

I don't bring up religion aside from prior posts about praying with pts.

If you discovered someone was discriminating against someone who was of a religion other than your own, what would you do? Just out of curiosity

I suppose that varies on context.

If they were getting harassed about it, then I'd step in and tell the offender to stop making a deal out of it.

See if they are good about it after our want to go to HR, and depending on how they answer, I might go to HR on their behalf even if they didn't want me to.

I mean, there's things I won't defend.

But if the person wants to be left alone and mind their own business and do their job but isn't allowed to, that's also different than say, someone who is looking for a fight?

Also depends on the parties involved. Not meaning I'd only defend my friends,because I'm not like that, but that's such a vague question I can't answer you fully.

Perhaps illegal, but don't conflate what is legal with what is ethical. There's nothing unethical about an organization preferring to hire employees whose values more closely reflect the values and culture of that organization.

That depends entirely on the context. Passing over a good employee for a clearly well-earned promotion just because they go to a different church than you, or because they don't go at all? That's one thing.

At the same time, I don't think it's a good for anyone to try to force, for example, a Hasidic Jewish community organization to hire a devout Muslim who proselytizes the Koran. Or a Christian organization to hire a satanist or a vocal atheist.

Why do we as a society think it's a good idea or somehow a reflection of justice to force people to associate with those they don't want to associate with?

That's what I'm saying.

Freedom of association should be for all private individuals and businesses.

So the company hasn't responded to my resignation yet, but I was sent an email about needing corrections to a PCR.

Since I personally decided to remove myself from the company, shouldn't I not access any more company software with PHI and HIPAA stuff?

What sound I do?

Was your resignation immediate? Meaning you have already worked your last shift there?

I would argue that you have an obligation to make sure your paperwork meets the standards that you agreed to when you took the job. HIPAA is not an issue here. OTOH, it sounds as though the documentation that they require for BLS calls is a little unreasonable, and also that you've already worked uncompensated hours for them, and they've generally treated you really lousy.

If all those things are true, I think it's at least understandable for you to walk away and just be done.
