Can I request an exemption from the vaccine surcharge?

Employees who wish to be exempt from the FY23/FY24 vaccine surcharge on the basis of their sincerely-held religious belief or for a medical reason must complete a request for religious accommodation (PDF) or a request for medical accommodation (PDF) and submit the request to HR Connect.

Once the accommodation form has been submitted to HR Connect, Human Resources will engage in an interactive process with the employee to ensure a timely determination of the employee’s exemption status. Exemption requests may take up to 30 days for review, and while the request is being reviewed the employee will still be responsible for paying any applicable surcharge.
