COMPANIES CAN REQUIRE WORKERS TO GET VACCINATED
Gov. Phil Murphy made an additional COVID announcement about workers yesterday. Companies can choose to tell their employees and contractors that they must get vaccinated for COVID-19, or they will lose their jobs. It's not a state-wide mandate or requirement: every company must create its own policy.
"Private-sector employers are equally and fully empowered to work on a more ambitious timeline," Gov. Phil Murphy said, "or to require either a more rigorous testing regime — or eliminate that option completely and require all employees to be vaccinated as a matter of their continued employment.” (ROI-NJ
