Thread regarding Halliburton Co. layoffs

Inside Info?

Anyone have any inside info on if Halliburton is planning to mandate the vaccine? With TX banning mandates by any entity, not sure how they could. Since a large part of their business is in TX they can't really do it for one location but not others.

PS. Asking for inside info, NOT your opinion on the vaccine.

It all comes down to cost. With Abbot saying that they would likely side with the employee on an unemployment claim for termination after vax refusal, the ultimate question is what would cost them more money? Paying unemployment benefits or paying the OSHA mandate fines. Seeing as how the OSHA mandate was stayed in court and subsequently dropped by OSHA since it cannot be enforced, I imagine the least risky option for Halliburton at this point is to also drop the mandate.

The other variable at play here is customer requirements and how much of a role that will play in their decision. I could see it going either way here honestly.

It's all about the $$$ in the end, but I'm sure they're watching the legal battles on this front very closely to determine their next moves.

ConocoPhillips communicated it Oct 5th, either you don’t work for them or you aren’t that important…either way it happened…

I work for ConocoPhillips in Permian basin and no mandate for service workers to be vaccinated or wear masks aside from safety meetings conducted outdoors business as usual.

I haven't heard anything, whatever the results of that survey were awhile ago they sorta just dropped it. I haven't heard anything since.

Halliburton will say that "our customers require it". (Whether this would be true or not)

No inside info on this particular company, but there is currently no federal law (not even a purported executive order at the federal level) mandating vaccines for private organizations. If one materializes, it will be challenged on multiple fronts (and it would be mere speculation as to how it would be challenged unless/until the purported order or law comes out).

The people who have replied so far clearly can't read. And the first guy doesn't understand state rights lol.

Executive orders only apply to the executive branch. They are not laws. Neither are mandates.

Yep. State law doesn't override federal law, nor executive orders.

Several international firms based and/or doing business in Texas essentially OWN Mr. Abbottoir.
If they require vax corporate-wide, they will do it in TX. For example, government contracts.

Mr. A will get a talking to in the stern.
