Reactions to Biden’s COVID-19 Vaccine Mandate
President Joe Biden’s administration is blazing ahead with its COVID-19 vaccination efforts. Federal workers and nursing home staff were recently ordered to get vaccinated as a condition of employment. Now, a similar mandate is being imposed on private employers with 100 or more employees.
That’s right—applicable employers will soon need to require COVID-19 vaccinations among employees or allow them to show proof of a negative test each week.
The specifics of the mandate—which are being drafted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)—have yet to be released. This leaves employers in limbo for now, where they’ll have to prepare their workforces without knowing the full scope of what’s expected of them.
Until OSHA releases its rule, employers are left to do their best in preparing for the upcoming mandate. This article offers a glance at how employers across the country are reacting to this developing situation.Members login to access full article
