Discriminatory Health Insurance Premiums in the Workplace
About the Investigation:
If you worked for a company that penalized you for not getting the vaccine by raising your health insurance premiums, you may have a claim for religious or disability-based discrimination.
Discriminatory Employment Practices Investigation Related to Health Insurance Premiums
Since the outbreak of COVID-19, the ensuing lockdowns, and the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines, many employers pressured employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, despite the fact that many employees had religious and/or medical reasons conflicting with the COVID-19 vaccine requirement. As required by law, the majority of employers offered both religious and medical exemptions to the vaccine to many employees.
If you had a religious or medical reason for not receiving the COVID-19 vaccine, requested a religious or medical exemption/accommodation to your employer’s policy — regardless of whether the exemption was granted or not — and your health insurance premiums were thereafter raised by your employer, you may be entitled to compensation.
The experienced class action and vaccine legal teams at Siri & Glimstad are investigating possible class action lawsuits against employers who raised health insurance premiums for employees who were not able to take a COVID-19 vaccine for religious or medical reasons and had their health insurance premiums raised.
How An Attorney Can Help
If you let your employer know that you would not be able to become fully vaccinated for COVID-19 due to a personal religious belief or an existing medical condition that would make it unsafe for you to do so, and your employer thereafter raised the cost of health insurance premiums for employees who did not receive a COVID-19 vaccine for religious or medical reasons, fill out the form on this page and our team will evaluate whether your potential claim.
There is no obligation involved in speaking to an attorney about your situation to find out whether you may have a case, but there is urgency to act due to statutes of limitations which impose deadlines to file a lawsuit.
