A company in Italy has decided to offer workers who have refused to take a Covid vaccine six months' paid leave.
The move by Italian high-end design firm Brunello Cucinelli is designed to protect workers who have been vaccinated.
Chief executive and founder of the firm, also called Brunello Cucinelli, said last week that only a tiny proportion of his company's 1,200 staff (1%) had opted not to be vaccinated when the company ran a campaign last month.
He told La Repubblica and La Stampa news outlets: “Clearly within the company their identity became known straight away. Now, as it's only logic, the [employees] who used to work at the same table don't want to be near those who have chosen not to get vaccinated.”
