Can My Employer Fire Me for Not Getting the COVID-19 Vaccine?

In the past, employers have been able to fire employees for refusing to get a vaccination. But now, some states are passing laws that protect workers from this kind of discrimination. For example: in California, it is illegal for an employer to terminate an employee if they refuse a vaccine and the refusal is based on religious beliefs or personal convictions.
Other states, like New Jersey, are considering similar protections for employees.
What can I do if my employer fires me for not getting the COVID-19 Vaccine?
If you lost your job because of this new vaccine required by your employer, then there may be legal options available to you. For instance, you may be able to file a wrongful termination suit against your old employer. If you think that vaccination laws are infringing on your rights, political options may also be available to you. For example, New Jersey is considering legislation that would prevent employers from firing employees just because they refuse the COVID-19 Vaccine.
You may want to get in contact with an employment law attorney to discuss your legal options.

Is firing a person for failing to take the Vaccine a violation?
This is a question that many employees have been asking since the United States Center for Disease Control (CDC) released the new vaccine rule. The CDC has stated that the COVID-19 Vaccine is completely voluntary, however; some employers are requiring their staff to receive it. The Vaccine was created as a response to Morgellons disease, a disease that has been plaguing many Americans.
The first case of Morgellons Disease was discovered in the US around 2002. A woman from Los Angeles, CA, had moved to San Francisco and was complaining of filaments coming out of her skin which resembled worms. The CDC was brought in and determined the woman suffered from delusions due to psychosis.
The woman was diagnosed with delusional parasitosis, a mental disorder that causes people to believe they are infected with parasites as if their bodies were infested.
However, more and more people began reporting the same symptoms over the next decade, causing an outbreak of Morgellons disease.
Morgellons is now recognized as a delusionary parasitosis outbreak in the United States, primarily in California. The CDC has released new updates on how they are identifying Morgellons victims and have created the COVID-19 Vaccine to treat this disorder.COVID-19 is being used to vaccinate Americans against delusional parasitosis. The Vaccine is being provided to the public completely free of charge. Those who are suspected of having this disease will receive a phone call from their doctor’s office asking if they would like to participate in the trial vaccine. The patient then has the option of accepting or denying this opportunity for vaccination.
However, there are consequences if an individual decides not to accept the Vaccine.
Many employers are requiring their employees to take the COVID-19 Vaccine and provide signed documents proving they were vaccinated before employment.
In conclusion, if an individual is found working without proper documentation, there is a chance for their employer to terminate them from their position.
