The Hershey chocolate corporation has given its employees a wonderful bonus to end the month of January. They decided to fire every one of their office workers who were not vaccinated.
The Hershey Company has begun firing office workers who did not get vaccinated against COVID-19. On the way out the door, Hershey is asking employees to sign a nine-page confidentiality and release agreement that would remove their rights to sue the company or talk about their experience.
Although their signature comes with a “special separation payment,” many have not signed the agreement and won’t get the money. Employees say the payment was determined by an algorithm and for some, amounted to just over two months’ pay.
Who would sign a non-disclosure agreement for a measly two month’s pay?
