Chicago Health Care Workers’ Class Action Against “Vaccine” Mandate Settle for $10.3 million

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Yesterday, Liberty Counsel settled USA’s first class-wide lawsuit for health care workers over a Covid injection mandate, for more than $10.3 million.

The class action settlement against NorthShore University HealthSystem is on behalf of more than 500 current and former health care workers who were unlawfully discriminated against and denied religious exemptions from the Covid injection mandate. The settlement must be approved by the federal District Court and was filed yesterday in the federal Northern District Court of Illinois.

Liberty Counsel is a Christian ministry that, among other things, advances religious freedom, the sanctity of human life and the family through strategic litigation.

In October 2021, Liberty Counsel sent a demand letter to NorthShore on behalf of numerous health care workers who had sincere religious objections to NorthShore’s “Mandatory Covid-19 Vaccination Policy.” If NorthShore had agreed then to follow the law and grant religious exemptions, the matter would have been quickly resolved and it would have cost it nothing. But, when NorthShore refused to follow the law, and instead denied all religious exemption and accommodation requests for employees working in its facilities, Liberty Counsel filed a class action lawsuit, along with a motion for a temporary restraining order and injunction.

Yesterday a settlement was agreed upon. As a result of the settlement, NorthShore will pay $10,337,500 to compensate these health care employees who were victims of religious discrimination, and who were punished for their religious beliefs against taking an injection associated with aborted foetal cells.

The amount of individual payments from the settlement fund will depend on how many valid and timely claim forms are submitted during the claims process. If the settlement is approved by the court and all or nearly all of the affected employees file valid and timely claims, it is estimated that employees who were terminated or resigned because of their religious refusal of a Covid injection will receive approximately $25,000 each, and employees who were forced to accept a Covid injection against their religious beliefs to keep their jobs will receive approximately $3,000 each.

The 13 health care workers who are lead plaintiffs in the lawsuit will receive an additional approximate payment of $20,000 each for their important role in bringing this lawsuit and representing the class of NorthShore health care workers.

This is a historic, first-of-its-kind class action settlement against a private employer who unlawfully denied hundreds of religious exemption requests for Covid injections. As part of the settlement agreement, NorthShore will also change its unlawful “no religious accommodations” policy to make it consistent with the law, and to provide religious accommodations in every position across its numerous facilities. No position in any NorthShore facility will be considered off limits to unvaccinated employees with approved religious exemptions.

In addition, employees who were terminated because of their religious refusal of the Covid injections will be eligible for rehire if they apply within 90 days of final settlement approval by the court, and they will retain their previous seniority level.

Liberty Counsel Vice President of Legal Affairs and Chief Litigation Counsel Horatio G. Mihet said:

“We are very pleased with the historic, $10 million settlement achieved in our class action lawsuit against NorthShore University HealthSystem. The drastic policy change and substantial monetary relief required by the settlement will bring a strong measure of justice to NorthShore’s employees who were callously forced to choose between their conscience and their jobs. This settlement should also serve as a strong warning to employers across the nation that they cannot refuse to accommodate those with sincere religious objections to forced vaccination mandates.”

Mat Staver, Founder and Chairman of Liberty Counsel said:

“This class-wide settlement providing compensation and the opportunity to return to work is the first of its kind in the nation involving Covid shot mandates. This settlement should be a wake-up call to every employer that did not accommodate or exempt employees who opposed the Covid shots for religious reasons. Let this case be a warning to employers that violated Title VII. It is especially significant and gratifying that this first class-wide Covid settlement protects health care workers. Health care workers are heroes who daily give their lives to protect and treat their patients. They are needed now more than ever.”

The dam has been breached and there will be a flood of claims. The cost of paying compensation as well as all the back-peddling will bankrupt the WEF agenda both financially, ethically, and morally.

If you do the math that’s around $20,000 per plaintiff. Not much at all considering. The people responsible for the genocide control TRILLIONS.

Our healthcare system is about to experience a tsunami! Potential side effects of jabs include chronic inflammation, because the vaccine continuously stimulates the immune system to produce antibodies. Other concerns include the possible integration of plasmid DNA into the body’s host genome, resulting in mutations, problems with DNA replication, triggering of autoimmune responses, and activation of cancer-causing genes. Alternative COVID cures EXIST. Ivermectin is one of them. While Ivermectin is very effective curing COVID symptoms, it has also been shown to eliminate certain cancers. Do not get the poison jab. Get your Ivermectin today while you still can! https://ivmpharmacy.com

Hope you’re right, but I suspect the tsunami will never come. Imagine you work in a heavily vaccinated field and all your competitors start dropping like flies, the same ones who made my life a f’ing nightmare for remaining a pureblood. I want to say ‘vengeance is mine!’, but it doesn’t look like it’s coming.

Oh, come on. It should be PHARM and all it’s many minions, who manufactured this fake, medical nightmare of a PYRAMID SCHEME at the expense of our health, mental health, spiritual health, social health, financial health, etc, that should be held responsible. This whole dangerous LIE that we—humans are infections, biological weapons/clown show has been a heist from day one planned eons ago. Buckley up. Get aligned in your mind, body, Spirit so we can all navigate this time and help one another. Germ theory is a diabolical made up story about “deadly viruses” that we pass to others, so “THEY” (The Hierarchy Enslaving You) can coerce/bribe/black mail/ to get our consent to be used as a pin cushion for their POISONS and experimental tech.

Those things, plus poisoning the air, water, food and the push on the humans (food, slaves, peasants) all the other “vaccines,” “treatments” and “medicine” that Pharm likes to tout as “life saving.” We are being bamboozled. And it’s been since birth. Keeping us dumb, chronically I’ll/disabled, mentally ill, physically ill, for one: it keeps us in fear when our health is bad and/or deteriorating and 2. Making us I’ll and keeping us ill is profitable. And it keeps us life long consumers of their many businesses to feed off our energy, frequency, and vibration. This whole thing from who we are, where we are from, where are we, why are we here, who are these beings running the show, why we seem to always be in some human medical experiment and ghouls cloaked in meat suits are directing the science project, etc is one gigantic conspiracy.

I agree with practically all you say.

However there is one glaring ‘mistake’ in your rant against the establishment in your very first line.

Rather, you should have said “Oh come on. It should be pHARM and all its many minions…”

The harmaceutical industry is a diabolical satanic force.
