    Recently, President Joe Biden announced his "Path Out of the Pandemic" plan to combat the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

    The three provisions that have the biggest impact to the business community are:

    1. Requiring employers with more than 100 employees to require vaccination or weekly testing
    2. Requiring employers with more than 100 employees to provide paid time off for employees to get vaccinated and recover from any side effects from the vaccine
    3. Requiring federal contractors and Medicare and Medicaid funding recipients to fully vaccinate staff.
    President Biden has directed the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration to bypass the traditional rulemaking process and file an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) for the two provisions listed above that impact employers of more than 100 employees.

    This ETS could take effect as soon as it is published.

    At this time, it is unknown whether the employer or employee will be required to pay for the weekly testing or what will happen if there is a shortage of available testing.


    Please take a moment and complete a brief, one-minute survey regarding this new mandate here.

    If you have any questions and/or you need additional information - or I can help you with anything else, please let me know.
