Companies are ending vaccine mandates. Some workers are not happy

It's not just JPMorgan Chase that's hiring unvaccinated workers again.

Nearly a third of employers who previously required COVID shots have dropped or plan to drop the requirement, according to a forthcoming survey.

Yet as virus rates appear to ebb and companies loosen rules, often in an effort to attract new hires in a tight labor market, they could be alienating employees who dutifully got their shots. COVID-cautious workers and customers as well may take umbrage at the idea of sharing space with the unvaccinated, complicating the return-to-office push.
