Former employees sue Confluence Health

83 former Confluence Health employees have filed a class action lawsuit against their employer, alleging that this is a case of wrongful termination, violating public policy, and disability discrimination.

Steven C. Lacy from Lacy Kane & Kube, P.S. has agreed to take on this case pro bono, believing that the workers were fired for not taking the COVID-19 vaccine, a requirement when working in healthcare.

“The policy that I'm referring to is the fundamental right of everyone in this state, and frankly the United States, to make their own personal health care choices. We are alleging that they interfered with the rights of their employees to make their own personal health care choices by forcing them to take an experimental vaccine or lose their job.”

The case also includes a declaration by Dr. Peter A. McCullough, a Dallas-based cardiologist who is known for spreading misinformation about COVID-19, who Lacy hired to be a key expert on this case. 

Dr. McCullough has been featured on the “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, and has made claims that asymptomatic COVID-19 transmission does not exist, and has purported the use of hydroxychloroquine and is one of the founders of the conservative advocacy group Association of American Physicians and Surgeons.

Lacy hopes that this trial will give his clients their jobs back and require Confluence Health to repay their lost wages, legal fees, and general damages. 

“ I love Liberty and I don't like people's liberties being taken away from them, so I thought maybe somebody ought to step up,” Lacy said.

The lawsuit is scheduled to be served sometime in late April, roughly 20 days after the case was filed on April 8.

Media attempted to contact Confluence Health for comment but were unavailable.
