Disney Sued Over Vaccine Exemption Refusals
Disney Sued Over Vaccine Exemption Refusals
As the significance of covid dwindles in the public consciousness, some companies are still fighting hard for mandates.
From The Epoch Times. The Walt Disney Company punished and then fired three longtime employees because they refused the COVID-19 vaccine on religious grounds, according to a new lawsuit against the company.
Join others crying out to the Lord day and night.
On July 30, 2021, Disney announced that its employees would have to take one of the several COVID-19 vaccines to continue working with the company.
When Florida’s government forbade “vaccinate or terminate” policies, the company began a relentless push to vaccinate all employees, including those who had requested religious exemptions, the lawsuit states.
According to the plaintiffs, Disney burdened religious vaccine objectors with restrictions that went beyond its original pandemic policy.
“The mask, face shield, and distancing from cast and guest were clearly punitive measures designed to destroy my health, segregate me, harass, discriminate, and intimidate me into taking an experimental vaccine,” said Adam Pajer, one of the suing employees….
Pajer, Barbara Andreas, and Stephen Cribb were longtime Disney employees….
All refused to take a COVID-19 vaccine, citing religious objections….
But instead of accepting these exemption requests, Disney pushed back. All three found the company was slow to respond to their requests, leaving them wondering about the position of their jobs.
When Disney finally responded, the employees faced interrogative interviews….
Eventually, Disney denied religious exemptions to all three employees. It also refused to speak with their lawyers….
Employees who refused to take the vaccine faced a series of restrictive safety measures that they argued amounted to coercion.
The unvaccinated employees said they had to wear masks while outside, wear N95 masks with “Warning” written on the front, eat in segregated areas, and not take off their masks even for a moment.
The company called for intrusive measures to test whether masks worked too. A technician sprayed a mist in employees’ faces, according to the employees’ lawyer….
Targets for Bullying
Disney didn’t provide separate areas where unvaccinated employees could get lunch.
At the same time, Disney had ended outdoor mask mandates for unvaccinated guests….
According to Andreas, these measures singled out unvaccinated employees and made them targets for a bullying campaign….
The lawsuit said that these restrictions resembled what Disney demanded of COVID-19-exposed staff before the vaccines became available….
Fired for Faith
Finally, Disney fired all three employees for refusing to take the vaccine….
The three employees filed a joint lawsuit against Disney for taking retaliatory action because employees filed religious discrimination claims.
The trio asked the court to reinstate their employment, end Disney’s enforcement of discriminatory protocols, and pay each plaintiff back for lost wages, lost benefits, attorney fees, and any other required relief….

They need to do away with this horrible vaccine mandate. It is not what they are telling people. It doesn’t keep you from getting sick, in fact, people who have had these shots are getting sicker than the ones who never took it. It has terrible side affects, it has costed the entire world dearly. It is only a way for the so called elites to gain complete control through fear. They did the same thing prior to ww2. People were experimented on in unimaginable ways, and millions were killed. Please wake up people and take a stand against the evils of this world before it happens again.
I’m glad that the Florida Congress took away Disney’s governing privileges so Disney now is governed like every other Florida business! FATHER GOD please restore all to the 3 employees in JESUS MIGHTY NAME! Amen!
I think Disney ie Wrong and should be shelling out lots of Money to these three former employees!
Father, I pray that you will intervene swiftly and stop these oppressors that are infringing on people’s constitutional rights. In the powerful name of Jesus, I come against any fear and intimidation that satan and his cohorts are trying to inflict on your children. As believers, we collectively bind the forces of the enemy in the name of Jesus. We have the victory in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah!!! Amen!!!
