Business owners and HR managers who have 100 or more employees got a little closer to a resolution over the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Emergency Temporary Standard when both sides argued before the U.S. Supreme Court today.
The standard requires employers with 100 or more employees to either mandate vaccinations for all, or to require your unvaccinated employees to take weekly Covid tests and wear a mask unless they work alone or 100 percent outside, among other things. But the objections center around these two principles.
The Sixth Circuit Court lifted the stay on the standard on December 17, and if the court doesn’t reenact the stay by Monday, it will go into effect on Monday. They may give a quick response, but not entirely necessary from an employer’s point of view. OSHA said that as long as companies are operating in “good faith,” it will not begin enforcement until February 9, giving the court a bit more time to decide.
