On September 9, 2021, President Biden announced a requirement that all federal workers be vaccinated against COVID-19. The action goes a step further than what Biden announced earlier this summer when federal workers had the option of being tested regularly instead of getting vaccinated. The tightening vaccine requirement for federal workers comes as the Biden administration is stepping up its encouragement of vaccine mandates in the private sector as well. The decision comes as Biden faces pressure to act more forcefully on the pandemic and the spike on the Delta variant across the nation.
Requiring Vaccinations for all Federal Workers and for Millions of Contractors that Do Business with the Federal Government
Building on the President’s announcement in July to strengthen safety requirements for unvaccinated federal workers, the President has signed an Executive Order to take those actions a step further and require all federal executive branch workers to be vaccinated. The President also signed an Executive Order directing that this standard be extended to employees of contractors that do business with the federal government.
Requiring All Employers with 100+ Employees to Ensure their Workers are Vaccinated or Tested Weekly
The Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is developing a rule that will require all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any workers who remain unvaccinated to produce a negative test result on at least a weekly basis before coming to work. OSHA will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) to implement this requirement. This requirement will impact over 80 million workers in private sector businesses with 100+ employees.
Why You Should Attend
These and other mandates are impacting the workplace in more ways. The Executive Order includes vaccine mandates for the healthcare industries and mandates for Employers to provide paid time off to get vaccinated. Employers in all these industries need to adapt to the changes to combat the Delta Virus. Many issues will arise based on these mandates like, what is the enforcement, what are the penalties, and which of the mandates will kick in first. This training will provide insight into all the mandates and how they will impact the workplace.
