“New York Supreme Court handed a massive victory to unvaccinated city workers on Tuesday, ordering the city to rehire workers who were fired, and give them back pay.
The judge ruled that the disparate treatment of city workers compared to private employees ‘violated the Petitioners’ equal protection rights as the mandate is arbitrary and capricious…’
The judge further noted that the vaccine doesn’t stop infection or transmission, and the CDC isolation guidelines don’t differentiate between vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Additionally, the judge said US President Joe Biden declared the pandemic over.
The judge also said it’s wrong to fire city employees who continued to work while their exemption requests were being processed. “
