United Airlines Will Place Unvaccinated Employees on Temporary Leave

United Airlines has told all employees who are seeking religious or medical exemptions to the company’s vaccine mandate that even if approved, they will be put on temporary leave starting Oct. 2.

The company said in a memo that the rule will be in place while it works to institute safety measures for unvaccinated employees.

Employees who are granted religious exemptions will be placed on temporary unpaid personal leave. Those who are granted medical exemptions will be placed on temporary medical leave, according to an internal memo reported by Washington Post. The memo does not say how long the leave will last.

On the other hand, if employees request exemptions and are denied, they will need to get vaccinated or terminated. They will have to get their first shot by Sept. 27 or be fully vaccinated within five weeks of the date of their denial notice. That

United Airlines announced the vaccine requirement for employees in early August.
