The number of public and private employers requiring their employees get vaccinated against COVID is growing daily. Although you have rights, your legal protections are limited. An employee must either assert their rights through the legal system, request a medical exemption under the Americans with Disabilities Act — which requires an employee to prove they have a medical condition or sensitivity to a vaccine that makes receiving a vaccine dangerous — or they must request a religious exemption.
The following information is designed to help you assert your rights and fight back against COVID vaccine mandates in the workplace.
