OSHA Suspends Vaxx Mandate Enforcement

Ground to the Good Stuff, At No Cost to Class

The Grind:
On Thursday, November 4, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) published an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) that establishes minimum COVID-19 vaccination and testing requirements for private employers with 100 or more employees throughout the United States.

The Details:
Shortly after the ETS was published, several states and businesses sued to declare that the rule was unconstitutional and beyond OSHA’s statutory authority. On November 6, 2021 the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals (based in New Orleans) issued a very short preliminary ruling “staying” implementation of the ETS pending further briefing in the court. Then, on November 12, 2021 the Fifth Circuit entered a long opinion in which it has issued a preliminary stay of the law.

In doing so, the court signaled in the strongest of possible terms that it was poised to find that the rule does exceed OSHA’s statutory authority in several ways and is unconstitutional. You can read the entirety of the opinion here.

In recognition of the court’s ruling, the administration declared yesterday that OSHA has suspended all activities relating to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending further litigation. Read more…
