Flu shot drama

Think getting a flu shot is a personal choice? It's not for some workers. When Detroit-based Henry Ford Health System mandated flu shots, Karen Bashita claims she was fired because she refused to get one for religious reasons. Now, Bashita is taking her former employer to court over the mandated shot, claiming that when it comes to health issues, that's something for an individual to decide, not an employer.
