If you are an essential worker and maskless Peggy Hall (aka Healthy American), or Lenka Koloma (aka FTBA) have inspired someone to harass or intimidate you, read on.
Peggy Hall has recommended in various public posts that individuals give essential workers documents to read. Some documents are believed to contain threats of lawsuits against vulnerable essential workers.
Many patriotic Americans who risk their lives to serve the public, report forced and unwanted encounters with maskless shoppers. As a result of this potential virus exposure perpetrated by maskless individuals, workers can experience long term emotional trauma including Post Traumatic Stress.
If this happens to you and you feel harassed, intimidated, confused, upset, emotional, scared or have a negative experience in anyway, report this behavior to your employer. If a perpetrator will not leave, call the police. If you are fearful of virus exposure – regardless of company policy, you have a right to refuse to serve that person.
You can make a police report at ANY time following the event. Retain the report number. Be sure to note the date and time of the incident so surveillance video can be retained. Consult with an attorney to find out what else you should do. Don’t rely on social media to provide you with your legal advice.
