What is House Bill 2001?

House Bill 2001 created a Kansas law that requires employers who impose COVID-19 vaccine requirements to:

  • Allow an employee to submit a written waiver request for an exemption to their employer’s COVID-19 vaccine requirement.
  • Allow medical and religious exemptions to COVID-19 vaccine requirements made in accordance with Sec. 1 of 2021 Special Session H.B. 2001 requirements.

This will also create a complaint and investigation process with the secretary of labor for violations of Sec. 1 of 2021 Special Session H.B. 2001, enforcement actions by the attorney general and civil penalties may be imposed by a court for such violations.
