USA: Mayo Clinic must face religious bias claims over COVID vaccine policy, court rules

May 24 (Reuters) – A U.S. appeals court on Friday revived a lawsuit accusing the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota of illegally firing five employees who refused on religious grounds to receive the COVID-19 vaccine or be regularly tested for the virus.
A unanimous three-judge panel of the St. Louis-based 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals¬†said, opens new tab¬†the judge who tossed out the consolidated lawsuits last year wrongly ruled that the workers had not connected their objections to Mayo’s COVID-19 policies with sincere Christian religious beliefs.
