Fort Worth, Texas (AP) — Federal Judge extends United Airlines ban on unpaid leave to seek medical or religious exemption from airline requirements to be vaccinated with COVID-19 Did.
Mark Pittman, a US district judge in Fort Worth, Texas, issued a detention order in favor of an employee suing an airline over his mission on Tuesday.
Employees and airline lawyers agreed last month that United wouldn’t leave workers unpaid, but the judge wrote that the contract would expire before he could determine the benefits of the matter. It puts “hundreds of workers” on indefinite unpaid leave or risk being vaccinated for violating their religious beliefs and medical restrictions.
The detention order expires on October 26th.
The accusing employee is trying to turn the proceedings into a class action proceeding. United states that of its 67,000 American employees, about 2,000 have sought a tax exemption for vaccination.
A United spokeswoman said Wednesday that the company is working with vaccination-exempt employees on safety measures such as testing, face masks and temporary work reassignments.
