The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has suspended implementation and enforcement of its guidance ordering companies with more than 100 employees to develop a COVID-19 vaccine policy by Jan. 4.
The update, announced Wednesday, follows a Nov. 12 ruling by a three-member panel of the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans that placed a hold on OSHA’s emergency temporary standard (ETS), calling it “staggeringly overbroad” and “a one-size-fits-all sledgehammer that makes hardly any attempt to account for differences in workplaces (and workers),” according to Reuters.
The case was decided to next head to the conservative-leaning Sixth Circuit before OSHA’s update Wednesday.
“While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation,” the agency said.https://www.complianceweek.com/regulatory-policy/osha-halts-implementation-of-biden-vaccine-policy/31015.article
