Google’s big warning to staff about vaccine mandate

Google is getting tough on it’s employees who haven’t been vaccinated against COVID

Google has told its employees they will lose pay and eventually be fired if they do not follow its COVID-19 vaccination rules.

A memo circulated by Google’s leadership team stated that employees had until December 3 to declare their vaccination status and upload documentation showing proof. The tech giant stated that after that date, employees would be contacted by management for a ‘please explain’ – with those who have applied for an exemption also to expect a call if their exemption request was denied.

The document said employees who haven’t complied with the vaccination rules by the Jan. 18 deadline will be placed on “paid administrative leave” for 30 days. After that, the company will put them on “unpaid personal leave” for up to six months, followed by termination.

Google is one of many big companies to enforce COVID mandates.

A federal court issued a stay on the order back in early November, putting a halt to the administration’s efforts.

Still, Google asked its more than 150,000 employees to upload their vaccination status to its internal systems, whether they plan to come into the office or not, and the company indicated that it plans to follow Biden’s order.

In contrast, Meta’s CPMs have remained stable, averaging $8-$11 since 2021, while TikTok’s CPMs have also stayed consistent, between $2.50-$4 post-COVID. The main story is Google’s rising costs, while social media channels remain stable. Businesses should diversify their ad spend, focusing more on cost-effective social platforms and optimizing their Google ads for better ROI to limit the impact of increased Search ad costs. #featured #trending
