OSHA Releases COVID Vaccine Rule for Businesses With 100 or More Employees

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration released an emergency temporary standard (ETS) requiring large employers (100 employees or more) to ensure all their workers are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or are tested weekly by January 4, 2022. Though the rule has been temporarily suspended by a federal appeals court, the White House has urged companies to move ahead with plans for vaccine and testing requirements.

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has released an FAQ page on the COVID Vaccination and Testing ETS. For more information, contact Caroline Fletcher at
