A marketing manager for sportswear company Nike was terminated for refusing to upload his Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccination records. The former employee said he refused to do so due to fears of identity theft that befell him and his wife earlier.
Dex Briggs, 53, worked at Nike’s corporate headquarters in Beaverton, Oregon. Having been a victim of identity theft alongside his wife, Briggs found the process of uploading his vaccination record too great of a risk to take.
According to Briggs, an unidentified third-party firm was responsible for creating the company’s vaccination database. It has access to vaccination records uploaded by employees and has permission to share the information with others to verify the records.
Being fully vaccinated himself, Briggs even offered to show his managers his vaccination card as proof. “I have my vaccination card [and] I’m quite willing to show you that. But I’m not willing to give my personal information to this [outside] company, and any other company they want to share it with, without even telling me who they are,” he said.
According to the former marketing manager, he was not alarmed about the vaccine mandate as he believed a private company such as Nike had a right to set its own vaccine policy. “I’m already vaccinated, so that doesn’t really matter.”
However, Briggs became frustrated when the Oregon-based sportswear giant moved forward with the verification process without providing details about the third-party platform. He also added that Nike was unwilling to accept his physical vaccination card as proof that he was injected with the COVID-19 vaccine.
“Why is the policy so restrictive? What are they trying to accomplish with this policy? That should be all that matters.” (Related: The vaccine mandate is a hoax, and no entity or person in America is obliged to follow it.)
According to a Jan. 12, 2022 report by the Oregonian, Nike said it plans to terminate several employees who were unable to meet the deadline for vaccine status verification. Those who have not received medical or religious exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine are also subject to dismissal. These two groups would be terminated by Jan. 15.
The report added that employees under these two categories had received an email in early January. The email read: “You failed to complete the verification process and our records show that you do not have an approved exemption. As a result, you are not in compliance with the [vaccination] policy and your employment is scheduled to be terminated on Saturday, Jan. 15, 2022.”
Briggs was among these employees laid off for failing to comply with the policy. He updated his Facebook profile on Jan. 15 to state that he and Nike had parted ways. “As a result, my employment will be terminated as of midnight tonight, after 26 years of loyal service. Their loss,” Briggs wrote in a Facebook post.
Briggs’ termination came less than a month after he accused Nike of “playing political games” with people’s lives in a Facebook post. He wrote in Dec. 17, 2021: “My employer is playing these political games with the lives of it’s employees, which is why I chose not to comply with the inflexible vaccination verification policy that goes into effect today.”
His December 2021 post also came with an article that featured former Housing and Urban Development Secretary Dr. Ben Carson. The piece published by the Epoch Times quoted the former Trump administration official, who said the COVID-19 pandemic could be solved quickly “if politics was thrown out.”
Nike did not respond to requests for comment. The company announced a COVID-19 vaccine mandate in September 2021, with the goal of returning employees back to the Beaverton site by early January 2022. However, the surge of cases driven by the B11529 omicron variant has pushed Nike employees’ return to a later time.
