“Employees will be given a two-week notification period after which they will be separated,” one of the documents states. “If during this period an employee decides to be vaccinated and submits proof of having completed the first shot, the separation date will be suspended and the employee will be allowed an additional four weeks to obtain proof of full vaccination. If the employee does not complete the full vaccination, the employee will be separated.”
Cox Enterprises, in a recruiting post on its careers page, wrote that as of Oct. 18, “we will require anyone wishing to work in or visit any of our highly concentrated administrative offices – including our Atlanta campus and surrounding buildings – to be fully vaccinated.” It was unclear Friday which locations would not require vaccinations.
Cox Automotive owns multiple retail brands, including Autotrader, Kelley Blue Book, VinSolutions and Manheim. Wholesale auction provider Manheim has 111 auction locations, including 76 physical sites and other mobile and digital locations, in the U.S. It was unclear Friday whether the Manheim locations are included in the vaccine requirement.
Cox Automotive employs more than 27,000 people globally.
