Tel Aviv labor court rules unvaccinated worker must take 2 weekly COVID tests

In a precedent, the Tel Aviv Regional Labor Court has obligated an unvaccinated employee to take COVID-19 tests twice a week in order to retain his job, Hebrew media reports.

Judge Carmit Peled dismisses the argument made by the man, who works for the Mekorot national water company, that the mandatory vaccines imposed by the firm are reminiscent of Nazi Germany.

The employee “will act in accordance with [Mekorot’s] rules, which change from time to time, and for now will take — against his will — two weekly coronavirus tests,” Peled says. She adds that the lawsuit had no legal basis.
