LA City Filed Lawsuit Against Both Current and Past Employees Vaccine Mandate!
An emergency use authorization for COVID-19 vaccines from the FDA lets people refuse the shot without getting in trouble with their employers, according to a lawsuit filed by dozens of current and past city of Los Angeles workers. The workers want monetary damages.
People who are suing said they were fired because they refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine at a news conference on the steps of City Hall on Tuesday. Jennifer Kennedy, an attorney, said, “In the city of Los Angeles, our workers performed their duties and kept the city running.”
As of December 18, 2021, all city workers had to get vaccinations. Michael McMahon, who was a police officer in Los Angeles for 14 years, is one of the more than 50 people who have filed this case. It was against my will to wear a mask, test, or get the EUA shots.
McMahon said, “I was locked up without pay.” The LAPD hired Michael Parks 16 years ago and he worked there. He was supposed to be promoted, but Parks says he was fired because he didn’t get the shot. They were doing something wrong in my eyes.
According to Parks, “I believed that individuals should have the freedom to decide for themselves what they put into their bodies.” He says he’s still trying to get his job back even though he was fired two years ago. Covid-19 vaccines are safe and successful, say the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Vaccines have been given to hundreds of millions of people in the US. The CDC says that everyone aged 6 months and up should get the vaccine because it rarely causes serious health problems. It took ABC7 a while to get a response from Mayor Karen Bass’s office about the case.
