Were you punished for sticking to your beliefs about the COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate?

Was your request for a religious or medical exemption denied?

Some military members who refused to get the COVID-19 vaccine have faced negative consequences such as administrative separation from the military, which could negatively impact their military record and future job prospects.

In some cases, these hard-working military members may have received a less favorable service characterization on their discharge paperwork, which could affect their eligibility for certain benefits such as education benefits, VA home loans, and health care. Additionally, they may have faced disciplinary actions such as loss of pay or rank, and even the possibility of a court martial in some cases.

In December 2022, the government made a new law that got rid of the vaccine mandate. The Military Department must update records and remove any adverse actions solely based on refusal of the COVID-19 Vaccine. We all know how fast the military moves (or doesn’t move) when it comes to paperwork like this. The process to advocate for these changes on your own record can seem like an intimidating and overwhelming process to the normal military member, but we are here to carry the torch and make the bureaucratic process easy and painless for you.

John Malek Law Group can help fight against these negative consequences in several ways. First, we can help military members navigate the complex military administrative and legal processes to contest an unjust or unfair separation. This includes helping military members prepare and submit petitions for correction of their military records, as well as representing you in administrative hearings or appeals.

Additionally, our firm can help military members understand their legal rights and options under the law, including the recently passed law that requires the removal of adverse administrative actions solely based on refusal of the COVID-19 vaccine. We will provide guidance and support to you and your families throughout the process, helping you to make informed decisions and obtain the best possible outcome.

If you were kicked out of the military just for not taking the vaccine, you cannot get a service characterization less favorable than a "General" (Under Honorable Conditions). If you were given less than that, let us get it corrected for you!

If you got a misconduct charge based solely on not taking the vaccine, we can help you get that removed!

Did you separate only because of the vaccine mandate and would like to join the armed services again? We can help facilitate that too!

If you suffered consequences to your military career under these mandates, it's important that you reach out to us right away, so we can start the process for your record to be cleaned and cleared, as you deserve!
