Federal Court Finds Health Workers ‘justified’ Fighting Vaccine Mandate

Federal Court finds health workers ‘justified’ fighting vaccine mandate

The Federal Court has found a group of health workers are justified in fighting mandatory COVID-19 vaccines.

Justice Debra Mortimer said Monash Health’s lack of consultation and lack of risk assessment before directing its Victorian staff to have a vaccine could constitute “adverse action”.

It is unlawful for an employer to take adverse action against an employee for exercising a workplace right, such as the right to be consulted about Workplace Health and Safety matters.

The judgment adds weight to the workers’ current General Protections dismissal claims.
