Since we had not discussed mandatory vaccinations for a week, it seemed appropriate to provide an update. Gone are the days when HR professionals can take a week off.

Recap: On December 17th, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals lifted the stay on the Occupational Health and Safety Administration’s (OSHA) Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), which requires employers with 100 or more employees to mandate vaccination against COVID-19 or require unvaccinated employees get weekly COVID tests. OSHA immediately issued a statement confirming that it would proceed with enforcement of the ETS, though it clarified that employers who were “exercising reasonable, good faith efforts to come into compliance” would not be fined until after February 9, 2022. The ETS technically took this into effect last Monday, January 10.
