Crown Perth Offers Employees Covid Vaccination Incentives
It has been announced that the New South Wales and Queensland-based venues of Crown Resorts will implement a mandatory vaccination policy.
The policy comes after a month-long consultation with employees, unions, industry, and business organizations.
Perth continues to enjoy an almost Covid-free environment, and government policy is still evolving, so we are not quite as advanced in our consultation. We need to finalize the methodology, but our aim will be to achieve alignment across all of our resorts. From the start of the pandemic, we have promised our employees that we will always put their health and wellbeing first.
This policy is consistent with that – and consistent with our responsibility to care for not only our employees but our guests, our partners, and our investors' interests. We had overwhelming support for this from our stakeholders and thank them for working with us so constructively.
Crown are playing their part in ensuring the safety of their employees with an incentive scheme which includes three hours paid leave for each vaccination and a day's paid leave if the employee suffers from any adverse reaction from the vaccination.
Employees who have already been vaccinated will receive a $50 gift voucher.
