(Worthy News) – A federal judge in Monday night refused to block United Airlines’ vaccine mandate, concluding employees failed to show they faced “imminent, irreparable harm” if the policy is allowed to stand.

U.S. District Judge Mark Pittman in Fort Worth denied a motion for preliminary injunction filed by United employees based at Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport. They sued the Chicago-based airline in September for civil rights violations after it became the first major U.S. carrier to impose such a mandate. Under the policy, United offers unpaid leave for employees who are granted exemptions for religious of medical reasons. Employees who do not comply and who lack an exemption face the threat of termination, with United CEO Scott Kirby stating last month that 232 employees are to be fired for noncompliance.

United has argued none of the plaintiffs can claim disability discrimination because they do not have a disability as defined by the Americans with Disabilities Act. [ Source: Courthouse News (Read More…) ]
