H2043: EMPLOYER LIABILITY; COVID-19 VACCINE REQUIREMENT

If an employer denies a religious exemption and requires a person to receive a COVID-19 vaccination as a prerequisite to or requirement for maintaining employment, the employer is liable to the person for damages that result from a significant injury that is caused by receiving the COVID-19 vaccination. A claimant who prevails under this provision must be awarded actual damages, court costs, and reasonable attorney fees or statutory damages of $500,000, whichever is greater, and may also recover exemplary damages. These rights supplement any other rights and remedies provided by law.
