New Details on Vaccine Mandate for Employers with More Than 100 Workers


January 4, 2022 

New Details on Vaccine Mandate for Employers with More Than 100 Workers From MN Chamber Of Commerce website  -   CLICK HERE for more information.

On Thursday, November 4, President Biden mandated “two different vaccine rules covering more than 100 million workers.” Read all the details of the Emergency Temporary Standards here from OSHA. Recently, the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated the Biden vaccine mandate

requiring businesses of 100 or more employees to ensure employees are vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing. Though, it is possible the U.S. Supreme Court could block the mandate again. 

With the mandate currently moving forward, the Minnesota Department of Labor and Industry announced Minnesota OSHA is preparing to adopt the Emergency Temporary Standard as soon as January 3, 2022 but “will not issue citations for noncompliance with any of the requirements until January 10, 2022, and it will not issue citations for the testing requirements until February 9, 2022, so long as businesses are making ‘good faith’ efforts to implement the rules.”
