A bill introduced in the Utah State Legislature could require an employer to relieve an employee of the COVID-19 vaccine mandate under certain conditions.
The bill is sponsored by Sen. Kirk Cullimore, R-Draper. It would allow employees to waive the vaccine mandate by claiming medical, religious or other personal reasons. It also would not allow employers to fire employees who refuse to be vaccinated.
If the bill is approved by two thirds of all the members elected to each house, it would take effect after it is signed by the governor.
