New Rules for Employers on Employee COVID-19 VaccinationPrint PDF
On November 4, OSHA published its long awaited rules on mandatory COVID-19 vaccinations in the workplace. OSHA’s framework is the result of President Biden’s September 9th executive order directing it to develop rules that require all businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure that all employees are fully vaccinated or undergo testing on at least a weekly basis. With OSHA’s rules in hand, employers now have additional clarity and guidance on how to implement the new requirements. With the deadline for complying with the new rules only weeks away, employers need to act quickly to either implement new policies or modify existing ones.
Join members of Nutter’s Labor, Employment and Benefits practice group for a webinar where they will provide an overview of the new rule and answer some of the most common employer questions, including:
- How will the 100-employee threshold be counted?
- Must proof of vaccination be collected by employers?
- What type of testing will be required? Who will have to pay for the testing?
- Can employers still require vaccination without a testing alternative?
- How are remote employees handled?
- What do employers do about conflicting state or local laws and legal challenges to the Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS)?
