T-Mobile US will fire corporate employees who are not fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by April 2, according to an internal company memo posted on The T-MO Report blog.

the blog said T-Mobile’s new policy was announced Friday in an email from its head of human resources to all employees. It follows a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on January 13 that blocked U.S. President Joe Biden’s COVID-19 vaccination or testing mandate for large companies.

“Employees who have not yet taken steps to receive their first dose and submit proof by February 21 will be placed on unpaid leave,” the blog said citing the memo. “Affected employees who are not fully vaccinated … by April 2 will be separated from T-Mobile.”

The memo, addressed to “all employees (except international)”, stated that the vaccine rules do not apply to field technicians and most retail functions in stores.

In a statement Saturday, T-Mobile said that “we are requiring office workers (with limited exceptions for certain roles, locations and legally mandated accommodations and exemptions) to be fully vaccinated by April 2.” He added that “badge-controlled offices remain accessible only to those who are vaccinated against COVID-19.”
