Vaccine Incentive Program

Vaccine Incentive Program

In support of our goals to protect the workforce, our community, and the continuity of our business during the COVID-19 pandemic, Eagle Mine is providing a vaccine incentive program.

  • All Eagle Mine employees who are fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and provide proof of vaccination will receive $1500.
  • All employees who are fully vaccinated will receive another $1000 incentive if an overall Eagle employee vaccination percentage of 80% is reached by December 1, 2021.
  • As of October 1, the Eagle Mine workforce is between 60-65% vaccinated.

 

Timing of Payouts
This is the only opportunity that Eagle will be offering an incentive and employees must be fully vaccinated by December 1, 2021, to be eligible for both the $1500 and $1000 incentives. The cash incentive will be paid out in October for employees who have already provided proof of vaccination. Employees who provide their Record of Vaccination prior to the deadline will be paid out in November or December.

The final $1000 incentive will be paid out in December if the Eagle workforce reaches an 80% vaccination percentage.

 

Providing Documentation
Employees who have not already provided documentation should email a photo or copy of their Vaccination Record Card to Brittney Schaeffer at brittney.schaeffer@lundinmining.com in Human Resources. If you need a copy of your Record of Vaccination, please click here to visit the Michigan Immunization Portal and obtain a copy.

Eagle’s expectation is that all employees will display our value of integrity when it comes to documentation. If an employee chooses to falsify a Record of Vaccination, it is grounds for termination.

 

Scheduling an Appointment
For employees who may have recently had COVID-19 or are recovering from COVID-19 and may not be eligible to receive the vaccine, the December 1st deadline may be extended. Reach out to your supervisor if you require an extension. Please schedule a vaccine appointment as soon as possible to take advantage of this one-time $2500 incentive opportunity.

Additional Benefits
Fully vaccinated individuals will find it easier to attend sporting events, restaurants, concerts, and travel to certain areas as mandates increase across our communities. Reaching the 80% vaccination goal supports Eagle’s values and our pandemic goals of protecting our workforce, our community, and the continuity of our business. Eagle Mine appreciates every individual’s commitment to maintaining a safe workplace during the pandemic and hopes that this opportunity provides both a thank you and encouragement to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.

This vaccine incentive is provided to only Eagle Mine employees and not embedded contractors. Please note, the cash incentive will be applicable to state and federal taxes.
