Citigroup workers who are not vaccinated by January 14 will be fired.
Citigroup Inc. workers who refuse to comply with the company’s vaccination mandate before January 14 will be fired, Bloomberg reports.
They will be granted unpaid leave and released from employment at the end of January.
Employees will be required to sign an agreement stating that they will not take legal action against Citigroup to receive year-end bonus payments. Some workers will continue to receive certain payments.
“We invite you to apply for other roles at Citi in the future, as long as you comply with Citi’s vaccination policy,” the message to employees read.
More than 90 percent of Citigroup employees have met the vaccination mandate so far, according to a company spokeswoman. He stated that the figure is rising rapidly.
The mandate allows employees to apply for religious or medical exemptions.
Citigroup has faced public reaction of some employees as a result of their vaccination mandate.
The company first announced a vaccination mandate for all employees in late October.
The company previously offered a $ 200 bonus to employees who present proof of vaccination in early December. Citigroup has also held sessions with doctors and other experts in an attempt to ease concerns about the vaccine.
