Teachers Who Refused COVID Shots Must Be Reinstated with Back Pay, Rules State Supreme Court Judge

Ten New York City teachers who were fired for refusing to take the COVID-19 vaccine must be reinstated with back pay, a New York state judge ruled last week. 
State Supreme Court Judge Ralph J. Porzio held that the city’s denials of religious accommodation to certain employees were unlawful, arbitrary and capricious, according to Fox News. 
The case of DiCapua v. City of New York concerned a variety of educators who sued after their requests for a religious exemption were denied. 
“This Court sees no rational basis for not allowing unvaccinated classroom teachers in amongst an admitted population of primarily unvaccinated students,” Porzio wrote in his ruling.
