OSHA to Release ETS on Vaccine Mandates
Last week, President Biden released his COVID-19 Action Plan, including mandates for COVID-19 vaccines and/or testing for employees working for employers that have 100 or more employees. This also applies to employees that work for the federal government or healthcare entities, and/or are federal contractors. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) will release an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) in the next 2-8 weeks for this mandate. OSHA will release an FAQ prior to issuing the ETS including how OSHA will calculate 100 employees (per building, organization, etc).
MHCA and AHCA/NCAL will continue to monitor any activity and share additional information when it is available. In the meantime, AHCA/NCAL has created an FAQ addressing some of the common employer concerns regarding Biden's Plan and the upcoming OSHA ETS is available.
