CNN Fires Three Staffers Who Came Into Office Unvaccinated

Zucker reminded employees that being vaccinated is mandatory in order to come into the office at present. And he said when the company learned of staffers who had come into the office without meeting that condition, it fired them. “In the past week, we have been made aware of three employees who were coming into the office unvaccinated. All three have been terminated. Let me be clear — we have a zero-tolerance policy on this. You need to be vaccinated to come to the office. And you need to be vaccinated to work in the field, with other employees, regardless of whether you enter an office or not. Period.”

The executive noted that employees were feeling unsettled as the pandemic took a new turn. “I think it is fair to say that we are all feeling a mix of anticipation, anxiety, frustration, confusion, and exasperation. All of that is to be expected. We all have decisions to make that impact so many aspects of our lives. I get it. If nothing else, the resilience and perseverance you all have shown for 18 months now needs to continue a little bit longer. But we will get there,” he said. “Continue to take care of yourselves and each other. And I will share more updates just as soon as we have them.”
