The research from Eagle Hill Consulting has found that 49% of working Americans believe that employers should require vaccination proof for those employees returning to the workplace.

Similarly, 48% of workers agree that employers should require vaccines, while 53% of them believe employers should offer vaccine incentives to their employees. Meanwhile, 35% say non-vaccinated employees should not be permitted to work in-person with co-workers.

The good news is that the US is making incredible progress when it comes to getting shots in arms, which is helping to drive business and economic recovery. But, we're continuing to see employee concerns and divided views on a wide range of COVID-19 issues, which creates an increasingly complicated situation for employers

The survey has also revealed that 55% of workers say non-vaccinated employees shouldn’t be given special allowances to work from home.

Along with that, close to half of workers (44%) say non-vaccinated employees shouldn’t be allowed to travel for work.

At the same time, 39% of US workers say non-vaccinated employees should not be permitted to work in-person with customers.

More than one-third of workers (35%) say non-vaccinated employees should not be allowed to work in-person with co-workers. The majority of workers (83%) say non-vaccinated employees should be able to stay with their employer.

PaySpace Magazine anticipates that businesses are likely to experience harsh times due to their COVID-19 vaccination policies. As we can see, there’s a vast part of people refusing to take a jab thus jeopardizing the safety of their co-workers.  At the same time, those businesses that make COVID-19 vaccination mandatory are likely to be accused of violating human rights.

We’ve reported that the UK health management app added a vaccination certificate feature.
