OSHA publishes long-awaited emergency temporary standard on workplace COVID-19 vaccination
November 5, 2021 - 9:21 am

The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) released its long-anticipated emergency temporary standard (ETS) governing vaccination in the workplace. OSHA published both a summary of the ETS and a fact sheet. This alert covers the nuts and bolts of the ETS. In the coming days we look forward to publishing further analysis of the ETS and the potential and anticipated challenges it faces.

The bottom-line takeaway from the ETS is that all covered employers will need to require their employees to either be fully vaccinated for COVID-19 or submit to weekly testing. The first compliance deadline is December 5, 2021. Weekly testing requirements for employees who are not vaccinated must be met by January 4, 2022.
