What to Do Next: OSHA’s ETS and Other Concerns for Employers - On-Demand

Webinar now available On-Demand.

Length: 1 hour

WEBINAR SNAPSHOT: Uncover next steps & best practices for complying with the Emergency Temporary Standard and implications for employers who may need to require COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing in the workplace.

On November 5, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a new emergency temporary standard (ETS) that mandates employers with at least 100 employees to require vaccination or weekly testing of their employees. The rule allows for a few exemptions, including people who work exclusively outside or from their homes and those with medical or religious reasons for refusing vaccination.

On November 6, a group of businesses were successful in getting a three-judge panel from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to issue a temporary stay blocking enforcement of the rule pending further action from the court. Despite the Biden Administration's vaccine mandate being put on temporary hold, the White House is still encouraging employers to proceed with implementing the policy. Begging the question, now what?

Join attorneys Fern Fleischer-Daves and Lindsay DiSalvo for a live webinar on November 29, to uncover next steps and best practices for complying with the mandate, should the temporary hold be lifted and employers are forced to require COVID-19 vaccination or weekly testing in their workplaces. 

    After attending this webinar, the participant will be able to:

    • Understand what proof of vaccination can be requested, and from whom.
    • Satisfy both the Affordable Care Act “reasonable alternative” and Americans with Disabilities Act “reasonable accommodation” rules for vaccine incentives.
    • Anticipate complications of a “testing alternative” to vaccination.
