Bill Summary

The bill requires an employer that imposes a COVID-19 vaccine requirement to grant an employee an exemption if the employee submits a written request stating that compliance with the requirement would endanger the employee's or household member's health and well-being or would violate or conflict with the employee's sincerely held religious beliefs. If an employer terminates an employee for failing to comply with the employer's COVID-19 vaccine requirement, the terminated employee is not disqualified from eligibility for unemployment benefits.
