Southwest Airlines has decided not to fire employees waiting for vaccine exemptions.
Before the company had a plan in place to put those employees waiting for exemptions on unpaid leave by December 8.
Employees waiting to hear back about their exemptions will now be paid. If the exemption is denied employees can reapply.
Currently, employees have until November 24 to get vaccinated or apply for an exemption.
How do you feel about the vaccine mandate policy at your job?
