Tech specialist files for injunction against COVID-19 mandate at Digicel

Jovan Johnson, Senior Staff Reporter 

A senior data specialist at telecoms firm Digicel Jamaica has sought an injunction from the Supreme Court to block the implementation of the company’s mandatory COVID-19 vaccine policy. 

Doric White filed his urgent notice for court orders yesterday. 

Along with seeking an injunction, White has also filed a claim against Digicel alleging that the policy is in breach of his employment contract and constitutional rights. 

But, he said before the court makes a decision on those substantive claims, Digicel should be restrained from enforcing the policy in any manner prejudicial to his employment.
