    • OSHA Large Employer Vaccine Mandate Blocked by Supreme Court - January 13, 2022 - U.S. Supreme Court issued an order blocking OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard that would have required employees of large private companies (100 or more employees) to either get vaccinated or to test negative on a weekly basis.  It did uphold the mandate for healthcare workers including all employees, contractors, and volunteers affiliated with covered entities, including employees of funeral service establishments who enter Medicare – and Medicaid – certified healthcare provider establishments (“Covered Establishments”).

The ETS also acts as a proposal for a permanent standard and OSHA has decided to extend the comment period for that rule by 45 days. Written comments on any aspect of the ETS must now be submitted by January 19, 2022 to www.regulations.gov in Docket number OSHA-2021-0007, which is the only way that OSHA is receiving comments on the ETS. Written comments on the information collection request as described in Section V.K. of the ETS preamble [2021-23643] must still be submitted by January 4, 2022 in Docket number OSHA-2021-0008.
