Update on injunction filed by the San Diego Police Officers Association against City of San Diego

KEARNY MESA (KUSI) – The San Diego Police Officers Association has requested an injunctive relief filed against the City of San Diego in regards to the city’s vaccine mandate for first responders.

One of the core issues is whether or not officers will be allowed to record their exemption interviews.

Currently, they are hoping their injunction filed against the city will make way for officers to be able to record their interviews.

KUSI’s Teresa Sardina was live from Kearny Mesa at the San Diego Police Officers Association with more details.

Statement from attorney Michael Curran from Curran & Curran Law:

If they fire hundreds of officers, firefighters, and lifeguards, the safety of the city is at risk. 
CCLAW filed today a complaint with the Department of Fair Employment and Housing on behalf of over 500 police, fire, lifeguards and other similarly situated City employees demanding the City of San Diego be investigated for Fair Employment and Housing Act “FEHA” discrimination and violations on religious and medical exemption requests.
SD City’s approach to vaccine religious /medical exemption violates law, the Fair Employment and Housing Act, or FEHA.
This violation occurs when employers discriminate against employees seeking religious and medical exemption and attempt to go around requests for religious and medical exemptions and invade the private religious and medical information of the employee.
