Court Reinstates OSHA Vaccination Mandate

 Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS)

On Friday Dec. 17, 2021 the 6th Circuit Federal Court of Appeals reinstated the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) federal emergency temporary standard (ETS) for COVID-19. The 6th Circuit decision reverses the stay ordered in November by the 5th Circuit and allows OSHA to resume ETS implementation and enforcement nationwide. The ETS establishes a mandatory vaccination policy requirement for private employers with 100 or more employees.

ETS opponents have already filed an appeal with the U.S. Supreme Court challenging the 6th Circuit’s decision.
