Vans, Supreme and The North Face Will Reportedly Terminate Unvaccinated Employees

Vans Supreme

VF Corp, the parent company of a number of brands including The North Face, Vans and Supreme, will begin terminating employees that have not been vaccinated starting January 31, 2022.

‘Associates who are unable to receive a vaccine due to a medical reason, sincerely held religious belief, or other exemption provided by state or local law can request an accommodation/exemption,’ wrote VF senior director of corporate affairs Colin Wheeler in an email to Outside Business Journal. ‘If any associate does not have proof of an accommodation by January 1, they will be prevented from accessing our facilities and will be required to work from home, while they consult with their manager on next steps. If by January 31, they have not received an approved accommodation, they will be separated from the company and will not receive severance.’

At the present time, the new rules will only affect office-based US employees, but VF Corp plan to extend its vaccine requirements for further US associates in spring. Currently, there’s no reports regarding retail employees.

The news comes as Nike also stated that they would terminate the contracts of unvaccinated employees (starting on January 15).
