Federal Judge Restrains United Airlines From Enforcing Covid Vaccine Mandate on Employees Seeking Religious Exemption
A federal judge in Texas temporarily restrained United Airline from placing employees on paid leave who seek religious exemptions for Covid vaccinations.
Two weeks ago United Airlines employees sued the company in a federal court in Texas over its Covid vaccine mandate.
Attorneys for the employees argued the airliner’s vaccine mandate violates the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
According to the employees, United is not accommodating religious or medical exemptions as promised – rather, the employees are being put on six years paid leave.
