Ehe sports industry giant Nike was not bluffing when set December 1, 2021 as the covid vaccination deadline for its 14,000 employees at the company’s world headquarters near Beaverton, Oregon, in the United States.
Nike sent an email to all of them announcing that if they were not vaccinated by that date, will begin to be laid off from January 15, something that has begun to happen according to the OregonLive medium.
In the dismissal email you can read the following: “You did not complete the verification process and our records show that you do not have an approved (waiver). As a result, you are not in compliance with the Policy and your employment is scheduled to be terminated on Saturday, January 15, 2022.”
The company he planned for his employees to return to the office on January 10 to work a hybrid schedule. But because of the highly contagious Omicron variant, this date has been postponed indefinitely.
The same medium that has given the news reports that the sports brand Columbia, another company that, like Nike, is based in the state of Oregon, will implement the same policy.
