PeopleToGo and DispatchUs (hereinafter called the “Company”) are committed to maintain a safe work environment for all our workers and do our part in reducing the risk of COVID-19 transmission.
This policy applies to all Company resources who are in physical contact with fellow employees, site workers, contractors, clients, candidates, etc. The company recommends that all remote employees read through this policy to remain informed on action plans and ensure proper communication within our company.
Many of our clients are mandating vaccinations while on their site and their customer sites, and we are supporting their decision. Therefore, we are enforcing the importance of vaccinations to all our resources (either employee, contractor or subcontractor) and recommend that you carry the appropriate documentation while onsite. Each province has its own guidelines on the type of proof, please refer to the links below if you are not sure or contact HR.
Otherwise, we will require documentation exempting you from having the vaccination for medical or religious reasons. However, please note that should the client require vaccinated individuals, then you may not be assigned the call.
Vaccination against COVID-19 is one of the best ways to protect workers who work in locations that have contact with other workers, customers/patrons, or the public. The Delta variant of the coronavirus is more contagious, with greater risk for severe illness and hospitalization. Therefore, The COVID-19 vaccine gives us an added layer of protection against the virus and builds community immunity to help protect our friends, family and loved ones, including children who are too young to get the vaccine.
