98% of employees meet MGM Resorts vaccine deadline
MGM Resorts gave its US employees an October 15 deadline to get fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
US.- In August, MGM Resorts gave its salaried US casino workers an October 15 deadline to get vaccinated against Covid-19. According to CEO Bill Hornbuckle, more than 98 percent of the company’s salaried workforce has now done that.
The October 15 deadline applied to all workers who aren’t predominantly working from home. Salaried employees doing home-office must become vaccinated by November 15. Workers who do not get vaccinated can continue their employment with MGM Resorts, but must personally cover expenses related to their weekly COVID-19 testing.
In a letter addressed to MGM workers, Hornbuckle said: “As Nevada’s largest private employer — and as a large employer throughout the United States — MGM Resorts is uniquely positioned to help make a significant positive difference for our communities.”
“It’s hard to overstate the impact of having so many of our employees, partners, and their families stepping up to receive these safe, effective, life-saving vaccines.”
