Health System Lawsuit Settlement

Chicago-based NorthShore University Health System has agreed to pay over ten point three million to settle a class action federal lawsuit filed by employees who were denied a religious exemption to a COVID vaccine mandate. According to, as part of the settlement, the healthcare system will also grant religious exemptions to the COVID-19 vaccine to employees who request it, including those who were initially denied their exemption request. About five hundred twenty employees had been denied a religious exemption or accommodation.

It’s important to note that this was a settlement agreement, not a court decision. That said, it’s safe to say that this will send a powerful message that will reverberate round the country to healthcare providers that chose not to respect the constitutionally protected religious freedom of their employees.
