The law requires that employers must accommodate an employee refuses the flu vaccination for medical or sincerely-held religious reasons. There have been lawsuits filed throughout the country by health care workers who have been wrongfully terminated for refusing to accept a corporate flu vaccine. In addition, New Jersey recently held that, where an employer honors requests for religious exemptions, it violates the employee's Constitutional rights to refuse to provide accommodations for purely secular objections. See Valent v. Board of Review, Dept. of Labor.
We have been successfully fighting employers who have refused to accommodate workers with flu vaccine objections. We have medical and religious experts that can support your bona fide and sincerely-held objections, and we will aggressively protect your rights to object to flu and other mandatory vaccinations, especially where an accommodation can be easily granted, such as the wearing of a mask.
If you are facing potential discipline for objecting or refusing a vaccine in New Jersey or anywhere else in the USA, please call us or e-mail now for a free initial telephone consultation.
