Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 protects workers' right to refuse vaccinations based on religious objections. Under the PA & US Constitutions, it is unlawful for an employer to require proof of religious affiliation in order to exercise this right. Religious exemption is based on belief, not affiliation.

We have provided documents to help PA employees exercise their right to religious exemptions and to inform employers of their rights under the law.
