Covid injections - which employers are mandating them

The Mandate Update Project

The aim of this project is to provide information on the current mandates for COVID-19 vaccinations made by large employers and governments in Australia for their employees.

We need volunteers!

Could you give an hour a day (at a time that suits you between 9am and 5pm) on three days a week (any days of your choice)?

Are you polite, persistent, good at spelling and confident on the phone?

The work involves finding contact details for the media departments of large employers, emailing them a standard question about whether they mandate (using our email address), and then following them up by email or phone if necessary to obtain an answer.

To volunteer please email

Updates

In January 2023 we have prioritised the Excess Deaths project. This unfortunately means that we have had to delay the next update for the Mandate Update project.

Please consider volunteering!

Australians should be able to know which employers are mandating the covid injections. The next update of employer mandates is scheduled for Sunday 26th February.

Information is provided in the searchable table below, and can also be downloaded as a colour-coded Excel spreadsheet. The Excel spreadsheet provides more detailed information, including links to employer websites where appropriate.

As far as we can ascertain, the information is correct at the date given for each employer.

If an employer would like to correct or add information, please email editor@clarityonhealth.org

Given the large number of organisations to contact, it may take some time before a full picture of the situation in Australia is obtained.

If you would like us to find out the situation for a particular (large) employer, or if you have information on an employer’s current policy on mandates, please email editor@clarityonhealth.org

QantasQantas was mandating all staff until 16th December. They say they have "made the decision to remove the requirement to be fully vaccinated." It is unclear whether some staff will still be required to be vaccinated and Qantas has not answered a question about this. What appears to be an internal Qantas letter to staff has been sighted via AussieFreedomFlyers.com which suggests this may be the case.Airline2022-12-21
