American Air - no pandemic leave for unvaccinated

American Airlines said on Friday it would not provide special leave from next month to unvaccinated employees who have to quarantine due to COVID-19. Unvaccinated workers will have to use their sick time or medical leave if they miss work due to the disease, it said.

"Given there is an FDA-approved vaccine, pandemic leave will only be offered to team members who are fully vaccinated and who provide their vaccination card to us," the carrier said in a memo to staff


Good for American. Hopefully, more businesses will follow suit.

I support the AA decisions, but these employees may not tell AA that they tested positive and show up for work anyway. They should also add a clause that if you tested positive and do not quarantine, you are automatically fired.

How is this different?

Wouldn't employees be using "sick time or medical leave" for ANY disease?

Sounds like vaccinated employees will still get the special leave without being docked vacation time.

I don't know where the concept of pandemic leave came from but I'd say it's generous not to have an employee need to use 'regular' sick leave, vacation leave, or PDO to recover from COVID45*.

And it's a nice carrot/stick dynamic that might earn some converts.

Always a good thing.

(I like referring to COVID-19 as COVID45*, though I forgot who here first posted that.)





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except

And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.
