Supreme Court to hear Cari-Med, AIC vaccination matters early November

The Supreme Court is moving quickly to settle on whether it will grant injunctions sought by employees of two companies against the imposition of mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policies.

Today, a judge set full one-day hearings for next month in the separate cases filed by employees of pharmaceutical company, Cari-Med Group and investment firm, AIC Jamaica.

The Cari-Med matter will be heard on November 12 while AIC Jamaica's will be argued on November 19.

The judge ordered that in both cases, all the parties are to file detailed submissions to allow for the substantive issues to be argued in November.

This is being done at a faster pace than what usually happens, a likely acknowledgement of the significance of the cases and their implications for the country's industrial climate.
