The information was passed via an internal meme, according to CNBC and it ordered staff to upload documents showing their vaccination status.

Members of the company who fail to upload this document will be placed on unpaid leave and eventually let go.

The tech company has been pushing for a return to the office for staff but it has been repeatedly delayed.

A spokesperson for Google confirmed the report on the leaked memo, saying:

“As we’ve stated before, our vaccination requirements are one of the most important ways we can keep our workforce safe and keep our services running.
“We’re committed to doing everything possible to help our employees who can get vaccinated do so, and firmly stand behind our vaccination policy.”

According to the CNBC report, the memo which was sent out earlier this year told employees they had until 3 December to send proof of vaccination.

Workers also have the option of being exempted on medical and religious grounds.

Those who had failed to comply by 18 January next year will be put on paid leave for 30 days, followed by an unpaid leave for up to 6 months.

If they still fail to receive the jab after six months, they will then be fired from the company.
