Sixth Circuit Appellate Court to Hear Vaccine Mandate Case; OSHA Suspends Work on ETS

Sixth Circuit Appellate Court to Hear Vaccine Mandate Case; OSHA Suspends Work on ETS

Posted: Nov 23 2021
After a federal appellate court issued a nationwide stay of enforcement of the emergency temporary standard (ETS) that requires all employers with 100 or more employees to be fully vaccinated or test weekly for COVID-19, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced that it is has “suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement” of the ETS, pending future developments in the litigation.
 
Challenges to the standard have been brought in 12 circuit courts of appeal and in a random drawing held on Tuesday, the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals was chosen to hear the complaints filed by governors and private entities challenging the ETS.  It is unclear what the timeline for the litigation will be or how the court will rule.  Therefore, banks may wish to proceed cautiously in developing plans to implement the ETS in the coming weeks.
