The City of Toronto has fired nearly 500 employees who did not get vaccinated.
“As of the deadline,” the city wrote in a statement, “a total of 461 employees had either not received any doses of a COVID-19 vaccine or had not reported their vaccination status and have had their employment with the City of Toronto terminated.”
The city said that staffing levels would not be affected by the firings, as those who were fired were already suspended without pay. The initial deadline to comply with the vaccine mandate was October 30, but was pushed back to January 2.
Nearly 99 percent of the city’s active workforce have complied with the mandate, and are adequately vaccinated, reports CP24.
248 employees have just one dose of vaccine, and 37 employees are still on temporary leave, with their accommodation requests being reviewed.
The city’s vaccine policy states: “This policy applies to all City of Toronto employees, volunteers and students. For the purpose of this policy only, reference to ’employees’ shall also be read to include volunteers and students.”
Employees in certain divisions may have obligations in addition to this policy under division-specific policies regarding COVID-19 vaccination or under regulations, legislation or guidelines applicable to them.
New City of Toronto employees are required to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of being hired by the City of Toronto.
Fantastic blog! Do you have any recommendations for
aspiring writers? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost
on everything. Would you advise starting with a
free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I’m totally overwhelmed ..
Any ideas? Bless you!
