Talent Canada: Preventing the stigmatization of unvaccinated workers
Employers must be careful not discriminate against staff
Many Canadians are now getting vaccinated or are set to receive the vaccine in the coming weeks.
The vaccination of workers is welcome news for businesses that are waiting to reopen and return to normal operations. However, some workers won’t be able to get vaccinated and this could have troubling consequences in the workplace.
According to Andrew Caldwell, HR advisory team lead at Peninsula Canada, the stigmatization of unvaccinated workers can lead to social isolation, mental health concerns and low morale among staff.
