President Biden to institute a mandate that all employers with 100 workers or more must require COVID-19 vaccinations or a weekly negative test result before coming to work. The new rule will be enforced by OSHA, which will issue an emergency temporary standard to implement this requirement. The ETS will impact more than 80 million workers in private sector businesses in the U.S.
Businesses that do not comply with the agency’s rule can face fees up to $14,000. OSHA will require these employers to offer paid time off for vaccination.
