Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers (R) introduced a bill on January 20, aimed at holding employers liable for any health complications associated with any required medical products or procedures in response to numerous companies mandating the newly developed COVID-19 vaccine for employees.
According to a press release from the Arizona GOP State Senate, SB 1254 “would protect employees who suffer any adverse reactions, injury, disability, loss of wages, pain and suffering or medical expenses correlating to the employer mandate. Furthermore, if any injuries arise within 120 days after receiving an employee mandated medical product or procedure, it would be presumed that the product or procedure is the cause.”
The press release states:
The bill would award any employee who prevails in an action related to the injurious result of an employer medical mandate any consequential attorney fees and statutory damage awards equal to three times the actual damages.
In addition, if an employer mandated medical procedure or product leads to the death of an employee, the employer would be liable to the employee’s dependent.
Arizona State Senator Wendy Rogers said in statement, “Injecting something into your body is a very personal choice.” Continued Below
“We continue to hear personal testimony from people who’ve received the vaccine and are now experiencing negative effects. These COVID-19 vaccines are so new, nobody really knows what the fallout is going to be on each person’s individual health,” Senator Rogers said.
“Employers should be ready to face the consequences of any health problems associated with any forced medical procedures or products required of these hardworking men and women to maintain their employment,” she insisted.
SB 1254 is co-sponsored by Majority Whip Senator Sonny Borrelli (R), Senator David Gowan (R), and Senator Kelly Townsend (R). Continued Below
