Mandatory Vaccination Requirement
Urban One, Inc. and its divisions (collectively “Urban One” or the “Company”) have implemented a mandatory vaccination policy pursuant to which all employees must be fully vaccinated as a condition of employment to safeguard their health and well-being, as well as that of their coworkers, families, and the community at large, from the risks associated with COVID-19. Candidates should be aware that new employees will be required to be vaccinated by their start date, meaning they have received all of the recommended doses for either one dose or two-dose COVID-19 vaccine, and provide proof of vaccination status (e.g. CDC COVID-19 Vaccination Record Card), which will be kept confidential. Urban One is an equal opportunity employer and will provide reasonable accommodation to those who are unable to be vaccinated due to a sincerely held religious belief or a medical disability where it does not pose an undue hardship on the Company to do so as provided under federal, state, and local law.

We are an Equal Opportunity Employer.
