The news was further elaborated by CNBC, which writes that the management of the company asked the employees for their proof of vaccination or a document proving a medical or religious dispensation. After the deadline, which is December 3, designated employees will begin to contact each employee individually who has not responded to requests.

If contacted employees’ vaccination status is not updated by January 18, 2022, the company will take action such as “paid administrative leave” for a period of 30 days, followed by a maximum of six months of unpaid leave and, finally, dismissal.
