Kroger to End Paid COVID-19 Leave for Unvaccinated Employees

The grocery store chain said vaccinations are a focus for the company

Kroger, the country's largest traditional grocery store company, will end special paid COVID-19 leave for unvaccinated employees and will charge some of them $50 a month if they remain unprotected, the company said Tuesday.

The Wall Street Journal earlier Tuesday reported the changes in policy for the Cincinnati-based company, which has stores in 35 states.

Kroger said unvaccinated workers who get COVID-19 will no longer be eligible for special paid leave that it put in place last year. The paid leave will still be offered to vaccinated workers who get breakthrough cases.
