The foreign secretary said he “can understand” why firms would want to adopt a tough stance to keep staff safe but said the legal rules need to be looked at carefully.Number 10 confirmed it was up to individual businesses to decide when workers would be expected to return to the office if they are not back already.
In an interview on Thursday, Raab told Sky News: “We want everyone to be double-jabbed. I can understand why employers think that that would be a smart policy or approach to encourage, whether or not there should be hard and fast legal rules I think we need to look at carefully. But our message overwhelmingly is get the jab.” headtopics.com
He said he is not in favour of forcing staff to return to the office with a “stick approach” as some people have “understandable anxieties”.“I certainly think that we should be encouraging young people to get the vaccine, making sure the workplaces are Covid secure, a confident environment for people to return to,” he said.
“Certainly I know this as an employer in the [Foreign Office] … what I want to do is build up confidence rather than, if you like, take a stick approach and say you have got to get back into the office because people are still feeling their way and people have understandable anxieties.”Read more: The Guardian »

Mr Raab must think that the workforce is made up of people without health conditions and all able to take the vaccine. Not all unvaccinated people are anti vax. Some are cautiously waiting to get it but need more studies to happen. GB seems determined on destroying itself
