Adobe will place unvaccinated employees on unpaid leave

Adobe said it will place employees on unpaid leave if they're not vaccinated by Dec. 8, CNBC reported Friday. The company cited President Joe Biden's executive order on vaccines as rationale for the new rule, according to a notice the company sent to employees.

Over 90% of Adobe employees have told the company that they're vaccinated against COVID-19 or in the process of getting vaccinated. As for those who haven't yet gotten the vaccine, the company said it'll weigh religious or medical exemptions.

Earlier this month IBM also said that unvaccinated workers will be suspended without pay. On the contrary, companies like Apple and Amazon rolled out incentives for its employees to get vaccinated, but they haven't set an outright mandate.
