BREAKING: Google to fire all unvaccinated employees
— ACTforAmerica (@ACTforAmerica) December 16, 2021
Google will fire employees who refuse to get vaccinated for COVID-19,Â CNBCÂ reported.
Workers who havenâ€™t complied with the vaccine mandate â€” by either sending in proof of vaccination or qualifying for a religious or medical exemption from Google â€” will go on paid leave for 30 days starting Jan. 18. They had until Dec. 3 to send proof of vaccination or to apply for an exemption. Google won’t accept testing as an alternative to vaccination, according to a company memo cited by CNBC.
After the 30-day leave, Google will place workers on unpaid leave for up to six months, and then fire them.
In a statement emailed to Protocol, a Google spokesperson said the companyâ€™s vaccine mandate is â€œone of the most important ways we can keep our workforce safe and keep our services running.â€
â€œWeâ€™re committed to doing everything possible to help our employees who can get vaccinated do so, and firmly stand behind our vaccination policy,â€ the statement read.
Several hundred Google employees signed a manifesto condemning the companies vaccine mandate.
This is a small amount of the entire company, however.
Several hundredÂ GoogleÂ employees have signed and circulated a manifesto opposing the companyâ€™s Covid vaccine mandate, posing the latest challenge for leadership as it approaches key deadlines for returning workers to offices in person.
The manifesto within Google, which has been signed by at least 600 Google employees, asks company leaders to retract the vaccine mandate and create a new one that is â€œinclusive of all Googlers,â€ arguing leadershipâ€™s decision will have outsize influence in corporate America. It also calls on employees to â€œoppose the mandate as a matter of principleâ€ and tells employees to not let the policy alter their decision if theyâ€™ve already chosen not to get the Covid vaccine.
