Oklahoma court blocks hospital system from firing workers seeking religious exemption from vaccine
(Worthy News) – A Tulsa, Okla., judge granted the state attorney general’s request for a temporary restraining order blocking Ascension Healthcare from firing employees who had been denied religious exemptions from the hospital system’s COVID-19 mandate.
The restraining order was granted late Friday, Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor’s office said, according to The Epoch Times.
“This evening, the Tulsa District Court granted the State’s Application for Temporary Restraining Order in our case to keep Ascension Healthcare from carrying out its plan to fire employees who were unfairly denied religious exemptions from their nationwide COVID-19 vaccination mandate,” the Republican state attorney general said in a statement. “This is a win for religious freedom and our office will continue to fight against unlawful religious discrimination.” [ Source: Just the News (Read More…) ]
