Employment Law Alert – Federal Vaccine Mandate UPDATE—New Info for Federal Contractors
September 27, 2021
We have heard from many of you asking for the details on the recently-announced 3-prong federal vaccine mandate. As a reminder—President Biden announced Executive Orders outlining expectations for a vaccine mandate for federal government contractors and for health care workers, and a mandate/testing requirement for employers with 100+ employees. The Biden Executive Order announcement from a few weeks ago just set the expectation, and now we are starting to hear what the rules will look like.
First up—federal government contractors. On Friday 9/24 the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force issued some guidance. Full document can be found HERE.
That’s it for now—but as we learn more about the other elements of the federal vaccine mandate (healthcare workers and companies with 100+ employees) we will share!
