JP Morgan urges employees to be vaccinated

JP Morgan will ask all employees to disclose vaccine status by the end of June.

The banking group has suggested the idea of vaccines being mandatory and has urged all staff to get a vaccine before returning to offices in July.

JP Morgan CEO, Jamie Dimon, said in a memo: “We strongly urge all of our employees to be vaccinated because we think it protects you, your friends and family, your fellow employees, and the community at large.”

“In the future, we may mandate that all employees receive a Covid-19 vaccination consistent with legal requirements and medical or religious accommodations,” he said.

Dimon has taken a hard line on working from home and all staff will be returning to the office from July.

“If you can go into a restaurant in New York City, you can come into the office,” he said earlier this month.
