At the Warshawsky Law Firm, we are committed to representing employees whose requests for religious and medical exemptions to COVID-19 vaccination mandates have been denied. Despite some recent loosening of the strict vaccination requirements for certain public and private sector employees, much work remains to be done to vindicate the rights of employees who lost their jobs (or risk losing their jobs) over these tyrannical and misguided mandates.
In recent months, the Warshawsky Law Firm has filed additional lawsuits on behalf of workers whose religious exemptions to the COVID-19 “vaccine” were denied by their employers, resulting in wrongful terminations. We filed lawsuits on behalf of a PET/CT Technologist at Mount Sinai Hospital, a New York State court officer, two New York City school teachers, and a doctor who was completing his residency at Richmond University Medical Center. These lawsuits were filed in federal district courts in Manhattan (SDNY) and Brooklyn (EDNY) and assert claims under Title VII and the state and city human rights laws (where applicable), which require employers to reasonably accommodate the sincerely held religious beliefs of employees unless doing so would impose an undue hardship on the company.
We have more religious exemption cases in the pipeline, which we will continue to fight as long as necessary. If you or a family member has been denied a reasonable accommodation (religious or medical) to a COVID-19 vaccination mandate, please contact us as soon as possible, as there are strict statutes of limitations that apply to these lawsuits.
