As discussed in previous blog posts, on September 9, 2021, President Biden announced his Path Out of the Pandemic plan through a press conference. That press conference discussed a COVID19 vaccine mandate for employers with 100 or more employees. President Biden tasked the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) with drafting emergency temporary standards to flesh out the details of this mandate. According to one source, those emergency standards should be coming out in the next month or so.
In the meantime, employers may be wondering whether they should impose a COVID19 vaccine mandate even before OSHA releases its standards. Read our thoughts here.
