Google says workers that those who do not comply with vaccination policy will eventually lose their jobs: CNBC [Video]

Google informed employees they will eventually lose their jobs if they don’t fall in with the company’s vaccination rules, CNBC reported, citing internal documents.

Earlier this year, the tech giant imposed a mandate for its more than 150,000 US employees to be vaccinated, whether or not they worked in-office or remote, by December 3. They had to show documentation for their vaccination status, or apply for medical or religious exemption by the date, according to CNBC.

Google would contact employees who hadn’t declared their vaccination status and those whose exemption requests were not approved, CNBC reported.

Those who do not comply with the company’s vaccination policy by January 18 will be put on “paid administrative leave” for 30 days and then on unpaid personal leave for up to six months. If they remain unvaccinated, their employment will eventually be terminated, the media outlet added.

A Google spokesperson told Insider the company’s vaccination requirements “are one of the most important ways we can keep our workforce safe and keep our services running. We’re committed to doing everything possible to help our employees who can get vaccinated do so, and firmly stand behind our vaccination policy.”

At least 600 Google employees — less than 0.5% of its workforce — had drafted a manifesto opposing the company’s vaccine mandate, CNBC reported last month.

This comes as the Biden administration has ordered companies with more than 100 employees to require workers to be fully vaccinated by January 18 next year.

Earlier this month, Google postponed its return-to-office plan for locations in the US, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa amid uncertainty around the Omicron coronavirus variant.

Justices won't block vaccine mandate for NY health workers [Video]

The court acted on emergency appeals filed by doctors, nurses and other medical workers who say they are being forced to choose between their jobs and religious beliefs. As is typical in such appeals, the court did not explain its order, although it has similarly refused to get in the way of vaccine mandates elsewhere. Justices Neil Gorsuch, Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito dissented.
