The bill prohibits an employer from taking adverse action against
an employee or an applicant for employment based on the employee's or
applicant's COVID-19 immunization status. The bill allows an aggrieved
employee or applicant for employment to file a civil action for injunctive,
affirmative, and equitable relief and, if the employer acted with malice or
wanton or willful misconduct or has repeatedly violated the law, the court

may also award punitive damages and attorney fees and costs.
Additionally, the bill specifies that the COVID-19 vaccine is not
mandatory, that the state cannot require any individual to obtain a
