"Over 600 Google employees have signed a letter opposing the company’s plan to extend its vaccine rules and force employees to upload their vaccination status to a central database. The letter cites several issues including the privacy of medical information and non-inclusivity.
The Biden administration recently ordered that all companies based in the US with more than 100 employees should enforce vaccine passports for employees by January 4. Google responded by asking its more than 150,000 employees to upload proof of vaccination in an internal system by December 3, even if they plan to continue working remotely, internal documents obtained by CNBC revealed.
The company has also said that all employees that directly or indirectly handle government contracts need to upload proof of vaccination, even if they work remotely.
