Court Issues Nationwide Injunction Against Federal Contractors Vaccine Mandate

Court Issues Nationwide Injunction Against Federal Contractors Vaccine Mandate

Posted: Dec 08 2021
A federal court in Georgia yesterday enjoined the federal government nationwide from enforcing its vaccine mandate for federal contractors working on federal contracts. Banks that conduct business with the federal government or that have branches on military bases or other federal property may be subject to the vaccine mandate.
 
In September, the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force issued guidance that requires all employees working on a federal contract to be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Jan. 18, 2022, unless the employee is legally entitled to an accommodation for a disability or sincerely held religious belief, practice or observance. The guidance was issued pursuant to an executive order issued by President Biden that required federal contractors to follow the task force’s guidance designed to mitigate the risk posed by COVID-19. On Nov. 30, another federal court enjoined the vaccine mandate in Kentucky, Ohio and Tennessee.
