Goldman Sachs, one of the world’s largest investment and securities banking groups, has directed its employees in the US to report their vaccination status, prior to the return of its staff to the offices, informs the AFP agency.
“Registering your vaccination status allows us to plan a safer return to the office for all our staff, since we continue to comply with the local public health measure, “is emphasized in a letter that has been sent to all those hired who have not yet reported whether or not they have been inoculated against covid-19.
Employees had time until Thursday to attend to the request. In this document, the financial giant urges its workers to get immunized, although it specifies that it is a “personal decision“.
U.S. employers may require their employees to reveal your inoculation status as long as the information is confidential, per the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidelines. In addition, the agency allows companies to use mandatory vaccination of your staff.
At the same time, JPMorgan is scheduled to return its workers to the offices in July, while Facebook opts for another strategy and announced this Wednesday that its staff will be able to keep teleworking long-term.
