US Supreme Court Stays OSHA ETS Vaccination and Testing Mandate
Thu January 13, 2022
On Jan. 13, 2022, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) ruled to
stay the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) vaccination
and testing emergency temporary standard (ETS). The ETS was developed to
establish a mandatory vaccination policy requirement for private employers
with 100 or more employees.
Impact on Employers
Given this new stay, employers are not required to comply with the OSHA ETS
vaccination and testing mandate at this time. However, because the case has
been sent back to the 6th Circuit, employers will need to continue monitoring
legal developments to learn about a final decision on the ETS.
