OSHA - Emergency Temporary Standard

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has officially filed its emergency temporary standard (ETS) on COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing for employers with 100 or more employees, firm- or corporate-wide,

The ETS is effective immediately upon publication in the Federal Register and employers must comply with all aspects of this ETS within 60 days of publication (January 4, 2022). Employees falling under the ETS, CMS, or federal contractor rules will need to have their final vaccination dose – either their second dose of Pfizer or Moderna, or single dose of Johnson & Johnson – by January 4, 2022. In addition, the newly-released ETS will not be applied to workplaces subject to the federal contractor requirement or CMS rule, so employers will not have to track multiple vaccination requirements for the same employees.
