As you all know, last Friday the Supreme Court heard oral arguments regarding whether the OSHA ETS vaccine mandate should be upheld. The Court has not yet issued a ruling on this issue.  As of January 10, large employers need to be in compliance with all ETS requirements.  If an employer can show it is following all of these requirements, and is acting in good faith, then it has until February 9 to require testing for unvaccinated employees.  Yesterday, OSHA posted a “reminder” for employers that enforcement started on January 10.

We will keep you informed as to any rulings from the Supreme Court. Employers not in compliance as of January 10th are at risk for fines and penalties.  As always, contact any member of the COVID-19 Focus Team for advice tailored for your organization.
