Vaxxed nike employee Dex Briggs fired, refusing his vaccine information

Vaxxed nike employee Dex Briggs fired, refusing his vaccine information
Dex Briggs, a former Nike employee, was fired because he didn't give a third-party service his vaccine history.
Nike fired a worker who didn't show proof that he or she had been vaccinated.

He says he wasn't fired for not uploading proof of his vaccination status to a third-party verification service used by Nike, but he says he was fired because he didn't do that.

It was reported last month that Dex Briggs, 53, lost his job as a marketing manager at Nike's headquarters in Oregon because he didn't get the company's COVID-19 vaccine, which is supposed to protect against a virus.

In the beginning, Briggs said he was always willing to show Nike his COVID-19 vaccine card. When he found out Nike's policy required staffers to give their vaccine information to another company, he was worried.

It is there. I have my vaccination card with me. I'd be happy to show you. But, "I'm not willing to give this (outside) company my personal information, and any other company they want to share it with, without even telling me who they are."

Briggs said he didn't trust a third-party company because he and his wife had been victims of identity theft before.

When the company asked Briggs to show them his COVID-19 vaccine card instead of using the service, he agreed to do so.

He said it was frustrating that Nike didn't accept his vaccination card as proof of vaccination.

To figure out what they want to do with this policy. This is all that should be important, Briggs said.

So, I don't know, why is the policy so hard to follow?

In his LinkedIn profile, Briggs said that he had worked for Nike for more than 22 years.

The sportswear company said last fall that it would be requiring all of its employees to be vaccinated.

Employees who didn't get vaccinated on time started losing their jobs last month.

When The Post asked Nike for comment, they haven't responded yet.

It wasn't clear how many Nike employees were fired because the company required them to get vaccines.

Briggs said he didn't want to give the service his vaccine information because he was afraid that his identity would be stolen.
