Morgan Stanley (MS) has said it wants to see their staff’s COVID vaccination certificates.

Those in the US who have previously attested to being double jabbed (which covers round 90% of its US employees) now need to provide proof of this by 1 October, as it looks to provide a "comfortable and safe" work environment.

A spokesperson added that its policy and plans around return to work remain unchanged as it continues to monitor the situation and developments closely.

One report cited people close to the bank as saying as many as 50% of staff at the bank are already back in the office on a daily basis

A survey from earlier this year showed two-thirds of US employers plan to require employers to produce proof of vaccination.

AT&T (T) said last week it will require management employees to be vaccinated before entering a work location, as worries about the Delta variant, first identified in India, grow.

Earlier this year US Goldman Sachs (GS) said it wanted to know how many of its workers have received a coronavirus vaccine so it could plan for a safe return to the office.

A jab was not required in order to go to work, although the bank did say it "strongly encouraged" getting vaccinated.

But it also said the choice “is a personal one."

A Gartner HR survey revealed in March that nearly half (48%) of large global organisations will not track the vaccination status of their employees, with less than one in ten (8%) requiring staff to show proof of vaccination.

The issue is a tricky one, especially with a survey of 1163 UK workers, carried out by HR software provider CIPHR, showing that over one third (35%) of all UK workers said they would not work in the same office or work environment as someone who has refused the COVID-19 vaccination.

And according to a study of 5,000 workers across various sectors by BrightHR, around half expect their employer to introduce a mandatory vaccine policy
