Half of Bosses Won’t Allow Unvaccinated Staff Back into Offices, Survey Finds

A survey of more than 300 business owners indicates that a significant proportion of unvaccinated workers will not be allowed to return to their workplaces, even when lockdown restrictions are lifted. The Mail has the story.

Half of business owners say they won’t allow their staff to return to offices if they haven’t had a Covid vaccine.

A survey of more than 300 bosses found that 51% would allow only those who had been jabbed to visit company premises.

The study, which covered firms that employ fewer than 250 staff, comes as more companies prepare for a return to workplaces as lockdown eases…

Tycoon Charlie Mullins, who founded Pimlico Plumbers, has already said he will introduce a “no jab, no job” policy for new employees

Meanwhile, other employers are considering using health passports so that only vaccinated staff or those who have tested negative for Covid can enter their offices.

The results of this survey – conducted by Yonder on behalf of Cignpost ExpressTest – suggest that even “hybrid working” (working from home some of the time) won’t be allowed by over half of Britain’s bosses for those who decide against taking the vaccine.
