The WH also pushed back the deadline for workers in those sectors to get fully vaccinated until January 4, 2022.
The date is the same for federal contractors.
In September, the Biden admin stated that it would ask the employees at federal contractors to get vaccinated until December 8.
“We wanted to do this because we’re aligning it to make it easier—to make it as easy as possible for businesses to implement these requirements and for workers to comply,” the official said when asked about pushing back the deadline.
The Biden admin obtained many letters from the industries asking to move the vaccination deadline until after the holiday season.
The OSHA ordered the businesses with more than 100 employees to make the vaccine mandatory. Otherwise, they will face fines up to $13,600 per violation. An additional $13,600 fine would be given for an employer who doesn’t abate the violation.
The unvaccinated workers have to provide a negative test weekly. Also, they must wear masks on the job.
The ETS asks the employers to determine and keep track of the vaccination status of every employee.
The rule is effective immediately after the publication, on November 5, 2021.
WH officials stated that they introduced this order to protect the workers from health and safety hazards, including infectious diseases.
‘’ They say there is well-established legal precedent for OSHA’s authority to evaluate existing scientific evidence and apply data to develop safety and health standards. The ETS says it preempts state and local laws that ban or limit an employer from requiring vaccination, face-covering, or testing. However, several Republican governors and state attorneys general vowed to fight the new OSHA rule in court. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott issued an executive order on October 11 banning Texas businesses from requiring vaccines for employees or customers.’’ The epoch times reported.
Ron DeSantis, on October 28, filed a lawsuit against Biden admin’s order asking employees of fed contractors to be vaccinated.
The AG of Ohio, Kentucky, and Tennessee announced that they would react legally to this rule. Missouri’s AG Eric Schmitt, AZ AG M. Brnovich, and South Dacota Gov. Kristi Noem performed the same same.
The Republican National Committee stated that they would sue the admin and said that the rule was an “attack on frontline workers, first responders, small businesses, and the rights of the American people.”
The GOP lawmakers will “introduce a Congressional Review Act resolution immediately to nullify OSHA’s ‘emergency’ rule when Congress receives it.”
“While I would have much preferred that requirements not become necessary, too many people remain unvaccinated for us to get out of this pandemic for good,” Biden said in a statement.
Despite the widespread pushback, Biden has framed the issue as a choice between getting more people vaccinated or prolonging the COVID-19 pandemic.
