Mandatory vaccine soon required for all contractors entering a YG workplace.


 

All contractors who are working in YG workplaces must have received one

dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by November 30, 2021 and two doses by

January 30, 2022.

We understand you may have questions about how this may affect you and the

work you do for YG. While details are still being developed, we’ve compiled a

list of common questions and answers here.



 

1. What kind of workplaces does this mandate apply to?

All workplaces in which YG employees work. This includes:

  •  office spaces

  •  public facing spaces

  •  meeting rooms

  •  cubicles and desk spaces

More details on these locations will be provided soon.


2. When will I need to prove the vaccine status of my staff?

It’s your responsibility as a contractor to ensure that all of your staff entering a

government workplace are vaccinated. If a compliance officer asks your staff to

show proof, they’ll need to show:

  •  a government-issued Proof of Vaccination Credential (PVC), either in paper or digital

  • form and;

  •  a government issued photo ID.


3. How will this new requirement affect my contract with YG?

In addition to any applicable contract terms, contractors will need to comply

with the new vaccination requirements in the performance of their contract

with YG.


4. What happens if I am unable to complete a contract with YG because

my staff are unvaccinated?

If you have concerns about a specific contract you are working on, please

contact your contract manager, or fill out the inquiry form.
