Rogge Dunn Group’s Rogge Dunn was quoted in a Law360 article on October 12th concerning Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s executive order. This executive order prohibits “employers in the state from requiring employees to be inoculated if they object to the vaccine on a religious basis, for medical reasons or for ‘any reason of personal conscience,'” stated the article.
Although most businesses are likely to comply with this new order, Dunn said “some businesses may choose to test Abbott’s authority and violate the executive order by keeping in place vaccination policies that require all employees to comply or that place employees who request religious and medical exemptions on unpaid leave.”
This executive order is expected to be challenged in court just as the statewide ban on mask mandates is currently being challenged in court.
