CEO Jeff Zucker: «Zero tolerance. To work you need to be immunized “
CNN fired three employees who entered the broadcaster’s headquarters in New York despite not being vaccinated against Covid-19.
“Last week we were informed of the presence of three non-immunized employees”, reads an internal document circulated among employees cited by the Los Angeles Times. “All three have been relieved of their posts.”
“Let me be clear – said CEO Jeff Zucker -. We have a zero tolerance policy on this. You must be vaccinated to enter the office. And you must be vaccinated to be able to work in the field, with other employees, even if you do not enter the office ».
CNN has authorized immunized employees to return to work on a voluntary basis based on their statements, without requiring certification of vaccination.
