The Final Word on Vaccine Mandates? Supreme Court Stays Vaccine Mandate for Businesses
In an opinion stating that they believe that opponents of the OSHA ETS on Vaccinations and Testing will be successful in their challenge to that standard, the U.S. Supreme Court today reinstated federal court stays that had been entered against enforcing that ETS. These stays, however, only apply to the portion of the ETS that applies to non-health care workers at businesses over 100 employees. (OSHA has a separate healthcare ETS and the Court issued a different decision on the CMS mandate that affects many healthcare employers)
What does this mean? It means that non-health care employers with 100 or more workers do not have to implement a vaccination or periodic testing requirement and for now can stop worrying about OSHA enforcement of this ETS.
