Michaels Vaccine Reporting System
In order to comply with New York City law, Michaels is implementing a Vaccine Reporting System for the COVID-19 Vaccination.
What Does This Mean For You?
Effective immediately, all full-time and part-time Team Members, including those who are seasonal, who work in the 5 boroughs that comprise NYC are required to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 unless they have been granted a medical or religious exemption*. If you are granted an exemption (either temporary or permanent) you will be required to provide evidence of a negative COVID test each week unless you have also been granted an exemption from testing. Team Members who cannot provide such proof will not be allowed to enter the workplace unless they have a requested and/or been granted a religious accommodation.
Proof of vaccinations must be submitted by December 27, 2021, or by the first date of employment. If you are submitting proof of the first dose of a two-dose vaccine, the date by which you must provide proof of a second dose is no later than 45 days after submitting proof of the first dose, otherwise you will be removed from the workplace until you can do so. In accordance with State mandate, all Team Members will be required to wear a face covering at all times while at work unless granted a medical or religious exemption. Weekly negative test results must be provided each Monday beginning December 27, 2021, and on a weekly basis until further notice.
*Exemptions can be requested by clicking the “Upload Vaccine Verification” button and selecting “Yes” when asked if you are requesting an exemption. Indicate the reason (either medical or religious) and provide an explanation in the space provided.
