Breaking! On November 5, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) requiring employers with 100 or more employees to require their employees to be vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing if they’re coming into the workplace. Though we probably can’t answer all the questions you may have, today we’ll break down some major components of the ETS.

Signup today and get answers to:

  • How do I calculate the 100 employee threshold?

  • Does this apply to remote workers?

  • How do I determine which employees are vaccinated?

  • How should I handle employee requests for time off work in order to get vaccinated?

  • Do we need to pay for unvaccinated employees to get tested?

  • What if we are already subject to the federal contractor vaccination mandate or the Healthcare ETS?

  • When do we have to be in compliance?

  • Will the ETS get overturned in court?
