As COVID-19 remains a serious threat, we have implemented a mandatory vaccination policy that enables us to continue bettering days in the safest way possible. We require our team members to be fully vaccinated or have an eligible exemption as a condition of employment. In order to protect the health and safety of all our team members and our guests, and to ensure that we are following proper safety protocols in the county and state in which you will work, we must ascertain your vaccination status prior to your first day of work. If you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, please plan to have a copy of your full vaccination record or a picture of your vaccination record ready to present along with your I9 form and identification documents during your onboarding and on your first day of employment. If you have not been vaccinated, and believe you have a medical and/or religious exemption to receiving the vaccine, we will ask you about this during your onboarding and we will require documentation in support of a medical and/or religious exemption. If you are approved for an exemption, we will engage with you in the interactive process to determine whether a reasonable accommodation that does not cause Philz undue hardship can be offered.
