Italy tells employers to withhold pay for those with no vaccine passport

Quote:The Italian government recently announced a mandatory vaccine passport for both the public and private sectors and announced that workers that cannot show a vaccine passport will have their pay withheld.

The government decree will force about 23 million Italian workers to get a “Green Pass,” a COVID-19 vaccine certificate issued to those that have been vaccinated, recovered from the virus, or have a recent negative test. Some were concerned that unvaccinated workers would be fired.

However, on Wednesday, the government announced that those who do not comply with the order should not report to work but should not be suspended or fired. Instead, they should be considered to be on an unjustified absence and have their wages or salaries withheld.

The new vaccine mandate rules will be enforced on October 15, and last till December 31.

Those found to be working without a vaccine passport could be punished with fines of up to €1,500. Additionally, the government said it would not cater for the test costs for those who would prefer not to take the vaccine. Pharmacies will charge adults €15 for the tests and €8 for minors.

Those that have not recovered from the virus will need to get both doses of the vaccine, while those who have recovered from the virus will get the Green Pass after getting the first dose.

In Italy, violations of civil liberties are not the only concerns about vaccine passports. The Green Pass also tracks location, potentially violating privacy laws.

UK communications regulator lists “snowflake,” “Karen,” and “remoaner” as offensive terms

Quote:UK’s media regulator Ofcom has included new words to its list of potentially offensive language, including “Karen” and “Snowflake.” The regulator has not banned the use of the phrases but advises outlets to be more cautious about their use.

Ofcom recently conducted a survey where it put out a list of “potentially offensive” phrases based on complaints it has received in recent years and asked respondents to rank the phrases on how offensive they were. Topping the list was “Karen,” a phrase that refers to an entitled middle-class white woman, and “gammon,” used to refer to a conservative pro-Brexit man.”

Other phrases joining the list were “snowflake,” which refers to someone who’s overly sensitive and easy to offend, “remoaner,” used for people who often complain about Brexit, “boomer,” used for baby boomers who are supposedly stuck on old ways, and “libtard,” used for a liberal who’s overly politically correct and easily offended.

Ofcom claimed it conducted the research to remain “as up to date as possible,” because people’s perceptions of offensive language have changed since the last time it conducted a similar study, five years ago.

The regulator did not ban the phrases. But it does encourage broadcasters to avoid using the words.

“The findings are one of the things we will take account of when making judgements about programs,” a spokesperson for the media watchdog said.

“What it doesn’t do is ban any of the terms included.

“We take full account of freedom of expression and context, as always is key; the research suggests that audiences expect more contextual justification for certain terms than others.

“And notably, viewers and listeners categorized terms like Gammon and Karen as mild.”
