PURPOSE 
Refactored is committed to protecting our employees from COVID-19. Toward that goal, and in consideration of guidance released by the state of Colorado, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and a variety of public health authorities and professional organizations, Refactored is implementing a mandatory vaccination policy for all workforce members.

APPLIES TO
The Mandatory Workforce COVID-19 Vaccination Policy applies to all workforce members that wish to work in the office, unless the individual qualifies for an exemption as provided herein. Exemptions may be granted to Workforce members (1) who have certain medical conditions; or (2) on the basis of a strong religious or sincerely held belief. Workforce members who are denied an exemption shall have ten (10) days from the date of the notice of the denial to receive the vaccine (either a single dose vaccine or first dose of the 2-dose vaccine). Deferral of the receipt of the vaccine may be granted to Workforce Members (1) who have certain medical conditions; (2) who are on approved block FMLA or supplemental leave; (3) due to a positive COVID test or treatment; or (4) due to current pregnancy or breastfeeding.

DEFINITIONS
Workforce Members: All in office Refactored employees.
COVID-19: COVID-19 is a respiratory disease caused by SARS-CoV-2, a new coronavirus discovered in 2019. The virus is thought to spread mainly from person to person through respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks.
Fully Vaccinated: Individuals are considered fully vaccinated 1) two weeks after their second dose in a 2-dose series (such as the Pfizer or Moderna vaccines); or 2) two weeks after a single-dose vaccine (such as Johnson & Johnson’s Janssen vaccine).
International employees shall be considered in compliance with the COVID-19 vaccine requirement if they have been vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine that has either been authorized for emergency use in the United States by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or been authorized for emergency use outside of the United States by the World Health Organization (WHO).

POLICY STATEMENT
All Workforce members wishing to work on site are required to have or obtain a COVID-19 vaccination as a term and condition of employment at Refactored unless an exemption or deferral has been approved. All Workforce members shall be required to report their vaccine status and to provide approved documentation as proof of vaccination.  All current employees shall be required to report their status not later than October 19, 2021.  All new Workforce members shall be required to provide proof of their vaccination status prior to the start of their employment. 

ENFORCEMENT
Violations of this policy or associated procedures may result in appropriate disciplinary measures, up to an including dismissal.
