OSHA Suspends ETS Mandate

Yesterday, November, 17thOSHA officially suspended all activities regarding the implementation and enforcement of the recent ETS establishing the COVID-19 vaccination/testing mandate for employers. OSHA did this in response to the current injunction and in recognition of the fact that the viability of the ETS will take some time to work its way through the court system and ultimately almost certainly before the US Supreme Court.

What’s the takeaway? For now, employers need not worry about the December 5, 2021 deadline (and likely the January 4, 2022 deadline as well). Employers are still free to act on their own but need not worry about complying with the OSHA ETS.

For more information on the COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing ETS, visit OSHA’s website.
