Bank of America is encouraging its vaccinated employees to return to the office after Labor Day in September, the company’s CEO Brian Moynihan said in a Bloomberg Television interview Thursday.
Following Labor Day,”our view is all the vaccinated teammates will return,” Moynihan said. “We’ll have the ability to operate quite frequently and will then start to make provisions for another teammates as we move through the autumn,” he added.
“We encourage employees to enter their vaccination status in the company portalsite, and we expect nearly all our workers to return after Labor Day,” a spokesperson for Bank of America told.
Bank of America is not the only big bank concentrated on getting its workers back in the workplace. This week, Morgan Stanley CEO James Gorman said it’s time to get the bank’s New York workers to return to function in person today that more folks are becoming vaccinated for Covid-19.
“In case you can visit a restaurant in nyc, you can come into the office. And we want you at the workplace,” Gorman said. “By Labor Day, I’ll be very disappointed if people have not found their way to the office and then we’ll have a different sort of conversation.” The CEO added that workers can’t expect to get New York City-level salaries should they continue to work remotely
Legal experts say that employers can mandate getting vaccinated, although federal protections could allow for some exceptions.
