American Family Insurance to require vaccinations for employees working in-office
MADISON, Wis. — American Family Insurance employees who want to return to working in the company’s offices will need to get vaccinated before doing so.
The Madison-based insurance company plans to reopen its offices on Sept. 13.
Media Relations Director Ken Muth said many employees will likely continue working remotely, and the vaccine requirement won’t apply to them.
Employees who currently work onsite because of job responsibilities will have extra time to get vaccinated if needed.
The company said in a statement that the vaccination requirement will be in place “for the foreseeable future.” The policy doesn’t apply to American Family agency owners because they’re independent contractors.
American Family Insurance is the latest company to implement some sort of vaccine requirement for employees. On Thursday, Group Health Cooperative of South Central Wisconsin announced all employees must get vaccinated by Nov. 1.
