Issue: Whether New York State Health Regulation § 2.61 violates the free
exercise clause of the First Amendment by requiring employers to terminate
healthcare workers who refuse a vaccine because of their religious beliefs but allows
employers the unfettered ability to keep healthcare workers who refuse a vaccine
because of a medical condition.
Application (21A125) denied by the Court. Justice Thomas, Justice Alito, and Justice Gorsuch would grant the application.
