BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Tyson sacks managers over COVID-19 infection scandal


Tyson Foods Inc. has terminated the employment of seven plant managers after an investigation into allegations that the managers were betting on how many workers at the company’s Waterloo, Iowa, pork plant would acquire COVID-19, Tyson announced Wednesday.

In early November, a group of workers from the plant filed a complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Iowa, alleging in court documents that the plant manager organized “a cash buy-in, winner-take-all betting pool for supervisors and managers to wager how many employees would test positive for COVID-19.”

Upon learning of the allegations, Springdale, Arkansas-based Tyson hired former U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate the claims.

Tyson said along with the terminations, the company has created new communication channels for workers to voice concerns and formed a working group of community leaders to strengthen collaboration between the corporation and the plant community.
