Federal Vaccine Mandate has been reinstated - will it stick?
The Federal Vaccine Mandate regulations have been reinstated. Last month, the federal government issued vaccine or testing requirements for companies with over 100 employees. As of last week, that mandate has been reinstated. On Friday, a federal appeals court reinstated the Biden administration’s vaccine and testing requirement for private businesses that covers about 80 million workers. The ruling lifted a November injunction that had previously blocked the rule from the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which applies to businesses with at least 100 workers. And with states starting to pass their own, similar mandates that go into effect in as little as two weeks, is your business prepared to start the New Year in compliance?
- New York issued a vaccine mandate that takes effect December 27, 2021
- California issued proposed COVID-19 regulations to extend and revise its current emergency temporary standards set to expire on January 14, 2022
- More strict workplace rules are expected with Omicron’s emergence
With frequent changes to COVID policies and the law, how is your company staying up to date with the newly reinstated Federal Vaccine Mandate? With these regulations, it’s recommended that companies have strong policies in place to protect employees and to guard against liability. Join Ryan Parker, Chief Legal Product Officer at SixFifty, as he discusses the newly reinstated Federal Vaccine Mandate, what this means, and best practices for staying compliant.
This webinar will cover:
- What's next in the litigation
- Compliance deadlines for businesses
- Next steps for businesses
