One of Britain’s largest health care groups Barchester Healthcare and plumbing company Pimlico Plumbers have said they will not hire new employees if they have refused the jab.
These firms said the only exception will be those who have medical exemptions for refusing the vaccine.
Some groups of people cannot get the COVID-19 vaccine including people with severe allergies, who are pregnant, who have tested positive for coronavirus, and children or adolescents.
Pimlico Plumbers founder Charlie Mullins told Channel 4 News: “More and more businesses are saying the same things.
“We’ve already had the contracts drawn up, lawyers are very happy with them.
“They say it’s legal under health and safety laws and we have an obligation to protect our staff and our customers.”
