As featured in #WorkforceWednesdayThis week, we look at the next steps large employers and health care providers need to take to comply with vaccine mandate rules applicable to their organizations.

OSHA ETS: Next Steps for Large Employers

Large employers, those with 100 or more employees, are beginning preparations to comply with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) vaccine-or-test emergency temporary standard (ETS). Attorney Fran DeLuca tells us more about the steps employers should be taking now, despite challenges currently making their way through the courts. Just yesterday, the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation selected the Sixth Circuit to consolidate and review petitions filed in 12 circuit courts of appeals. See video below.

Last week, National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) General Counsel Jennifer Abruzzo issued a memo indicating employers may have a duty to bargain over their decision and the effects of implementing the requirements of the OSHA ETS. Attorney Erin Schaefer tells us more about how the ETS uniquely affects unionized workplaces. Read more about the memoSee video below.

CMS Vaccine Rule for Health Care Workers

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) issued an interim final rule outlining vaccine requirements for staff at Medicare- and Medicaid-certified providers and suppliers. Attorney Frank Morris discusses the next steps for health care providers. In addition, covered employers should continue to monitor the recent litigation filed in the Eastern District of Missouri and the Western District of Louisiana seeking to permanently enjoin the CMS interim final rule.
