All the New York city police officers and firefighters who were fired for refusing the COVID-19 jab must be reinstated, the state supreme court ruled. Not only that, they are entitled to every single penny of back-pay.
New York violated employee rights
According to a bombshell ruling dropped on Tuesday, October 25, by the New York State Supreme Court, the city “cannot fire employees for not getting vaccinated against COVID-19.” Eric Adams wasn’t happy to hear it.
The court ordered Mayor Adams to “reinstate all fired employees and grant them backpay.” The liberal policy was based entirely on politics, not the TRUTH.
As the justices wrote, “being vaccinated against COVID-19 does not stop an individual from catching or spreading the virus.” That’s partly because the jab isn’t really a “vaccine.”

This decision will have wide ranging effects because New York isn’t the only state where municipal workers were fired for refusing the experimental treatment. It was never meant to produce “immunity.” What it does do is genetically modify the virus once it invades your body, so it doesn’t bother you as much.
The high court of New York state is smart enough to realize that “being vaccinated does not grant enough community-wide benefit to warrant a mandate.”
That means the The health commissioner “acted beyond his authority” by “issuing an indefinite vaccine mandate rather than a temporary one.” The decision to do that, they added is “arbitrary and capricious.”
Adams eats more crow
Once again, New York City Mayor Eric Adams is forced to eat his own words. Earlier this year, he swore up and down that “his administration would not bring back workers who had been fired due to being unvaccinated.”
Guess what. He’ll be bringing them back. All 1,400 of them, “including a number of firefighters and police officers.” He will be writing each and every one of them a check for the money they should have made.
Adams has been under fire all along for simply not allowing any exceptions to New York City workers after “he granted one to celebrities who were competing in sports or putting on performances in the city.”

That was just another example of Democrats making up the rules as they go along and enforcing them one way for their friends and the opposite way for everyone else.
“States of emergency are meant to be temporary,” the court reminded him. “The question presented is whether the health commissioner has the authority to enact a permanent condition of employment during a state of emergency.” The short answer is “no.” Not in New York and not anywhere else either.
Real scientific data shows clearly that “the vaccines are only marginally effective at stopping spread, particularly against newer variants of the virus.” Since the jab is potentially more dangerous than the disease, “Petitioners should not have been terminated for choosing not to protect themselves.“
