On Nov. 4, OSHA issued its landmark “emergency temporary standard” that requires companies with more than 100 employees to require COVID vaccines for their workers or do regular testing by Jan. 4. Failing to do so could trigger fines of up to $13,000 per single employee violation. This new ETS leaves employers with lots of different compliance options and questions, like:
Should you offer a testing option or set a strict vax-or-fired mandate? How should you collect and track vaccination status? When must you allow medical and religious exceptions? Which employees does this apply to … remote workers? What’s the best way to communicate all of this?
One wrong answer can trigger big legal trouble, an employee-relations nightmare or both. It’s vital that you make smart legal decisions in the coming weeks and months to manage this unprecedented issue.
