Large employers with over 100 employees should start strategic business preparations now to comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS).
On Sept. 9, 2021, The White House announced the implementation of a national plan requiring all private employers with 100 or more workers to mandate COVID-19 vaccination (or a weekly test) for all employees, excepting those with disability or religious accommodations. The effective date of this requirement is currently unknown.
On October 12th, 2121, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) submitted a draft of the emergency temporary standard (ETS) to the Office of Management and Budget (OMB). While the public does not know details about the contents of this ETS, it signals that the rule is indeed moving forward as expected and could be in effect in as little as a few weeks.
