United Airlines ‘Fires’ The UnVaxxed

United Airlines announced this week that it will place employees who were granted exemption from the company’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for religious reasons on unpaid administrative leave.

What are the details?
In a staff note issued Wednesday, the airline told employees who interact with customers on a regular basis — including pilots, flight attendants, gate agents, and airport customer service agents — that they will be allowed to return to work “once the pandemic meaningfully recedes,” CNBC reported.

United reportedly did not provide a specific time frame for when customer-facing employees can expect to return to work, leaving them to wonder about their long-term employment status.
