Sacked Upstate Hospital Attendant Retaliates
Oleg Sidorchuk, an Upstate hospital attendant, refused to get a Covid-19 vaccine on religious grounds in 2021. After a two-year legal battle, he lost his job in April. However, in May, the state dropped its vaccination mandate, allowing the hiring of non-vaccinated workers at Upstate University Hospital.

Sidorchuk’s lawyers are confident about the case, which will be heard in early September.
Ousted Canadian Military Members Given New Hope
A Canadian military tribunal's non-binding decision may lead to more lawsuits against the federal government and reopen the debate over vaccine mandates. The Military Grievances External Review Committee (MGERC) found that the COVID-19 vaccine policy within the Canadian Armed Forces might have violated Charter rights of some members. Over 400 military members were fired or quit after refusing the vaccine, and 157 cases were referred to the committee for review. The committee found the policy was "arbitrary, overly broad, and disproportionate." The union is now suing on behalf of a former military member, sniper Dallas Flamand, seeking to overturn his firing and claim back pay.

The judge cited the separation of church and state and found that UVa acted in an arbitrary and capricious manner in denying her religious exemption request. UVa Health is also facing a possible class action lawsuit with around 400 claims of wrongful termination related to its vaccine policy. The university is set to end its vaccine mandate on August 4. Some employees have started receiving reinstatement letters.
Law Enforcement Group Strike Back Against School District
More than 20 school law enforcement officers are suing Los Angeles Unified, alleging wrongful termination or facing termination despite filing for religious exemptions to the district's COVID-19 vaccination mandate.

The suit claims the district disregarded religious beliefs and enforced the policy to the plaintiffs' detriment. The plaintiffs include school safety officers, police officers, detectives, and others.
