All-American company fires irresponsible employees, asks them to sign a 9-page agreement to remain silent

The Hershey Company has issued a requirement for a COVID-19 vaccine for its employees, and the company is currently laying off employees who do not comply.

A representative for the iconic Pennsylvania-based chocolate maker said unvaccinated employees are being “separated from the company”. WHTM-TV in Harrisburg reported Wednesday.

Hershey announced vaccine mission for salaried employees in August and it took effect on October 4.

“Hershey is committed to maintaining a safe and healthy environment for our employees and customers,” the company said in a statement. “We believe that the best way to protect the health and safety of our employees, their families and our various business partners is to ensure that our salaried employees vaccinated against COVID-19. This is to reduce the spread of the virus and the possibility of serious illness or death.”

Hershey not only fired employees who didn’t comply, but required employees on their way out the door to sign a nine-page confidentiality and disclosure agreement that would remove their right to sue the company and talk about it. their experience there. , Epoch Times reported on Monday.

Signing the agreement would provide laid-off employees with a “special separation payment,” the report said. Many have refused to sign the agreement and so will not receive the money.

The Epoch Times reports that employees say the payment for the deal is determined by an algorithm and, for some workers, equals two months’ salary.

Most of the staff said it was a great experience working for Hershey and that they were treated well.

“But things became less interesting after months of HR meetings that staff said included education about vaccines, asking if staff had changed their mind about vaccinations, as well as nasty intrusive question,” Epoch Times reported.

Do you think laid-off employees should sue Hershey?

One employee, Kim Durham, shared her thoughts.

“I really think I’ll be fine. I think, you can’t ask me trust. No one can question that,” she told the Epoch Times.

“I think this was behind me until September, when I met with an HR representative. It is an interrogation of your religious beliefs. They twist your words and try to put words in your mouth. It was horrible,” Durham said.

Another employee said it felt like being harassed by the company.

“What does that have to do with me keeping a job? Since we started this challenge, we’ve had seven meetings about my immunization status. It’s like harassment. I feel like I want to get under a rock when I’m done with it,” this person said.

This harassment report occurred despite Hershey’s official statement that it would work to engage employees.

“To support this, the company has funded many vaccination clinics and allowed employees to seek accommodation for religious or medical reasons. The company has engaged in an interactive process with our employees to assess when to need or secure an accommodation regarding immunization status,” a Hershey representative said, according to the WHTM.

But then the company fired people unvaccinated and try to entice them not to sue the company or talk about what happened.

This is corporate bullying, plain and simple.

If employees didn’t want to get vaccinated, Hershey tried to force them to make personal, private medical decisions that a company shouldn’t have a say in.

“I know people who get vaccinated just to keep their jobs. It’s not something they want to do, but they need the work,” Durham said.

“I also need a job,” she said. “But I’m not going to do something that I don’t feel comfortable doing, just keep my job.”

However, Hershey is not the only company to lay off unvaccinated employees.

Columbia Sportswear, Citigroup, JP Morgan, Mayo Clinic among companies with mandatory vaccines, laid off unvaccinated employees or are considering doing one or both, Newsweek reported last month.

Fortunately, many of the employees fired from Hershey are said to have failed to sign confidentiality and release agreements.

Perhaps they will file a lawsuit against the company for harassment and show the whole country that it is inappropriate to threaten and bully employees over vaccines.
