COVID-19 Vaccination and Safety Considerations Following Biden Administration’s New Vaccine Mandate Initiatives

September 17, 2021 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EDT)
Ends: 1:15 PM (EDT)

Please join members of Crowell & Moring’s Labor & Employment and Government Contracts groups for a summary of the Biden Administration’s announcement of new COVID-19 vaccine mandates and related policies for federal workers, federal contractors, and private sector employers with more than 100 employees. 

Our webinar will discuss the key provisions of the President’s September 9, 2021 pronouncements, including:
  • new requirements that most health care workers and employees of certain federal contractors be vaccinated, 
  • an OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard mandating that private employers with more than 100 employees require all employees to be vaccinated or submit to weekly COVID-19 testing, and imposing new paid leave obligations,
  • traditional labor law concerns related to unionized workforces,
  • potential opportunities for reimbursement of costs related to obligations imposed on certain federal contractors, 
  • anticipated staffing shortages and related practical concerns,
  • open issues regarding effective dates, scope of coverage and specific compliance issues, including requests for exemptions and accommodations, and
  • anticipated legal challenges.
