Illinois Health Care System To Pay Over $10 Million To Workers Who Sued Over Vaccine Mandate




Lawyers for 500 health care workers who sued a hospital system over a COVID vaccine mandate said Friday that the workers had settled for over $10 million. 

The workers, who alleged discrimination, had been denied religious exemptions from the NorthShore University Health Care System vaccine mandate.

“As a result of the settlement, NorthShore will pay $10,337,500 to compensate these health care employees who were victims of religious discrimination, and who were punished for their religious beliefs against taking an injection associated with aborted fetal cells,” Liberty Counsel, which represented the former and current workers, announced.

According to Liberty Counsel, the Illinois-based hospital system will also change its policy regarding religious exemptions and “provide religious accommodations in every position across its numerous facilities.”
