Google employee who refuses to be vaccinated is threatened with firing


Google has threatened to fire employees who refuse to be vaccinated against COVID-19, which is part of US President Joe Biden's mandate.

Under the mandate, President Biden requires government agencies, contractors and companies to vaccinate their employees. Including regulations that require companies with 100 employees and above to vaccinate employees or do a swab test once a week.

In a memo that Google sent to its employees, they gave until December 3rd to provide proof of vaccination or an exemption (not to vaccinate) from a medical or religious perspective.

Furthermore, Google employees who do not provide such data by January 13 will be forced to take 30 days of leave, and if within those 30 days they still fail to meet the requirements, they will be forced to take up to six months without pay, and then fired.

Google itself does not approve or deny this new policy, as quoted by us from The Verge, Wednesday (15/12/2021).

"As we've stated before, our mandatory vaccinations are one of the most important ways we can keep employees safe and keep our services running," said Lora Lee Erickson, a Google spokesperson.

"We are committed to doing everything we can to help our employees get vaccinated, and we will stick with our vaccination policy," he added.

But it seems there will be other options for employees who may not be able to get vaccinated. That is, they will be freed to work from outside the office, because it is reported that Google does not want to implement regular swab tests in its office.

Google has not yet decided when its employees will start returning to work from the office, considering that the Omicron variant has begun to spread widely.
