FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE
In October of 2021 employees of the federal public service were subjected to coercive vaccine mandates that infringed upon our right to medical privacy, bodily autonomy and informed consent.
Abandoned by our unions and threatened by our employer, FedsForFreedom has taken action in the pursuit of justice by retaining lawyer Umar Sheikh. This legal action is open to all Federal Public Servants including both unionized and non-unionized members of crown corporations, core-departments and agencies. Our campaign will support federal public servants whose rights have been violated as a result of the policy, including, but not limited to, employees who:
- were terminated
- attested and received an accommodation
- attested and were denied an accommodation
- were placed on unpaid leave and have not yet returned to work
- were placed on unpaid leave but have since returned to work
- retired early
- sought sick leave as a result of the mandates
- were coerced into taking a vaccine(s) to keep their job
FedsForFreedom maintains that medical privacy, bodily autonomy and informed consent are inviolable fundamental rights. As a result of the government’s policy, public servants have suffered irreparable harms and seek to remedy these harms through legal recourse.
If you, or someone you know, was employed by the Federal Government at the time the policy was introduced and felt harmed by the resulting mandates, please visit our website https://www.fedsforfreedom.ca/liberty-membership/ to learn more about joining our legal action.
We will be accepting members who wish to join our legal action(s) until March 31, 2023.
