BREAKING: Disney Now Requiring All Salaried and Non-Union Cast Members Be Vaccinated

The Walt Disney Company is reportedly informing their employees and Cast Members that they are now requiring all salaried and non-union hourly employees in the U.S. to be fully vaccinated.

Employees have 60 days to get vaccinated if they are not yet. All new hires will need to be fully vaccinated before employment. Disney is communicating with unions regarding union employees.

Those currently working remotely will need to provide proof of vaccination before returning to the workplace. That being said, the work-from-home calendar has been extended.

Certain exemptions do apply, likely for those who are immunocompromised and unable to be vaccinated.

Disney is working on creating a plan for their employees outside of the U.S., which would include those at Disney Parks.

  1. Not surprised and clearly within their rights as an employer. Those refusing are welcome to seek employment elsewhere or see if they qualify for a medical waiver from the company. Will cut down on absenteeism and hopefully get us all just a tiny bit closer to getting past this damn pandemic.

  2. I really hope this hurts the Disney company. They should not be forcing their cast members to get vaccinated! I

  4. Considering how quick the vaccine came out, without the stringent testing to know about any long term side effects, I do not think it is right to force this on those that do not want it. Hopefully there arent any long term side effects, but they cannot know that for certain since it was not tested for years like other medicines/vaccines.

    • And you medical degree is from where??? You are showing the unmitigated ignorance that has contributed to this pandemic raging on. You clearly have no conception of the amount of scientific testing that went on with this or understand the process.

    • I agree Doug, it’s just not right for a company to have any say in there employees health care. I’m hoping they will allow religious and medical exemptions.
