FAST FIVE: Goldman Requires Workers To Report If They Are Vaccinated
That has apparently changed, as Andrew Ross Sorkin's “DealBook” reported Thursday that the bank had sent a memo this week informing employees in the US that they had until noon on Thursday to report their vaccination status.
Since employers can't directly ask for this information, the bank will instead ask workers to fill in the date where they received their shots, along with the maker of their vaccine.
Another source who identified himself as the CEO of the “Society for Human Resource Management” said that “it's important to have data to make data-informed decisions…” He acknowledged that some may “grimace” at the idea of employers pushing for information like vaccine status.
They have conducted surveys and given out cash rewards, mimicking strategies embraced by state governments, as the Biden Administration scrambles to meet its goal of having 70% of American adults at least partially vaccinated by July 4.
No word yet on whether Goldman workers will receive any kind of compensation for getting vaccinated.
