Alabama bill would let workers sue if they get sick from employer-mandated COVID vaccines

Three state lawmakers have filed a bill that would allow workers to sue their employers for any “adverse reaction” they receive from COVID-19 vaccines mandated by their job.

The bill, prefiled Sept. 1 for the 2022 legislative session beginning in January, “would provide a private right of action against an employer for any adverse reaction, injury, temporary or permanent disability, or death of an employee arising from an employer mandate that the employee receive a 13 COVID-19 vaccine,” according to text of the legislation introduced by Reps. Tommy Haynes, R-Scottsboro; Andrew Sorrell, R-Muscle Shoals and Arnold Mooney, R-Birmingham.

Should the employee die from the vaccine, their family would be allowed to sue their employer, according to the bill.

According to the CDC, adverse reactions from the COVID-19 vaccine are rare.

1. A Dem should introduce a bill that an unvaccinated person who dies of covid

can sue the governor and the AL GOP.

2. I think they probably had that right before this bill, and they would lose in court either way /nt

3. Not hard to get around this one.

Make compliance to reasonable, prudent standards part of the employment contract. Signing the contract is agreement not to sue.

Don’t like it? You are free to leave. Like, now. Right NOW!

4. Mitch McConnell pitch for part of the law so employers couldn't be sued over workers getting sick?

Was that attached to the federal money? Republicans can’t seem to get their story straight

5. as employers exit the state in droves

If this passes they are in a no-win situation.

They can be sued now for letting unvaccinated people getting their co-workers or customers sick...
