‘The TTC has dropped its COVID-19 vaccination mandate for employees, paving the way for the potential reinstatement of hundreds of terminated workers.
In a news release issued on Thursday morning, the TTC said that it would formally lift the requirement as of Nov. 27. It said that employees who were terminated as a result of the policy “will be offered the opportunity to be reinstated” but will not be eligible for back pay.
CTV News Toronto reported in June that the TTC was facing nearly $3 million worth of wrongful dismissal lawsuits filed by former employees in conjunction with its mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy.
It did not provide its reason for lifting the mandate now.
