In a judgment dated 13 May 2022, the Bombay High Court upheld the appeal of a university employee and accepted the conciliatory proposal of the Symbiosis Center for International Education (SCIE) University, which had formally requested the non-vaccinated employee to go on unpaid leave until they produced the vaccination certificate.

The Court also upheld the University's proposal for full reinstatement of salary, including unpaid monthly payments during the forced leave. In addition, the University, on the Court's instructions, undertook to amend its regulations that had introduced the vaccination requirement as a prerequisite for access to paid employment.
