Changes made to Illinois’ ‘Right to Conscience Act’

Local News

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (WTVO) — A vote from the General Assembly altered the health care “Right of Conscience Act.”

The change was done to protect employers from lawsuits if they enforce COVID-19 vaccines or testing mandates.

The law does not go into effect until next June, but it could influence current court cases from employees objecting to being forced to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
