T-Mobile expected to lay off employees not vaccinated against COVID-19 by April


T-Mobile US will lay off company employees who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by April 2, according to an internal company memo posted on The T-MO Report blog.

The blog said T-Mobile’s new policy was announced Friday in an email from its chief human resources officer to all staff. This follows a January 13 U.S. Supreme Court ruling that blocked U.S. President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccination or testing mandate for big business.

“Employees who have not yet taken action to receive their first dose and upload proof by February 21 will be placed on unpaid leave,” the blog quoted the memo as saying. “Affected employees who are not fully vaccinated … by April 2 will be separated from T-Mobile.”

The memo, addressed to “all employees (non-international)”, said the vaccine rules did not apply to field technicians and most in-store retail roles.

In a statement on Saturday, T-Mobile said “we require office workers (with limited exceptions for certain roles, locations, and legally mandated accommodations and exemptions) to be fully immunized by April 2.” He added that “badge-controlled offices continue to be accessible only to those vaccinated against COVID-19.”
