Vax Proof for Independent Contractor
So I have a client I’ve worked for for about 3 years, mostly editing, but I did a shoot when COVID first started. I have a shoot scheduled in a week.
Today the client notified me that “their office requires that I must be vaccinated or show a negative COVID test within 48 hours”.
I’m not vaccinated, and quite frankly I pretty much stay isolated. I’m probably more concerned about getting COVID from their employees, especially vaccinated employees who can spread COVID than from giving them COVID.
As an independent contractor, and not an employee, why do I have to either show proof of a vaccine or a negative COVID test?
If they have a plumbing emergency, do they require a contracted plumber to show proof of a vax before they let him fix their issue? OSHA only seems to address EMPLOYEES, not independent contractors. What are your thoughts?
