OSHA Suspends Vaccination and Testing ETS

OSHA Suspends Vaccination and Testing ETS

1 minute read

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) put the COVID-19 vaccination and testing emergency temporary standard (ETS) on hold due to pending litigation.

The court ruled to extend the stay of ETS, stating the ETS imposes financial burdens on private employers. Overall, the court raised substantial questions on whether OSHA has proven that COVID-19 presents a “grave danger” to workers and if the ETS is “necessary.”

All lawsuits concerning the ETS have been consolidated and a lottery drawing was held to determine which Circuit court would review the arguments. It is uncertain when a ruling will take place.

Employers should continue to monitor OSHA ETS updates to determine if there are any changes in its status. Employers should understand the requirements of the ETS in case it survives the upcoming litigation.
