Vaccine-or-Testing ETS Remains in Limbo

The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has been randomly selected to hear the consolidated legal challenges to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA’s) emergency temporary standard (ETS) on the Biden administration’s vaccine-or-testing mandate for employers with 100 or more workers.

The 6th Circuit will be authorized to uphold or lift the 5th Circuit’s order halting the mandate. OSHA acknowledged the 5th Circuit’s ruling by suspending activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending further litigation. On Nov. 23, the administration asked the 6th Circuit to lift the order blocking the ETS.

In Congress last week, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and Sen. Mike Braun, R-Ind., filed a resolution backed by all 50 Republican senators to disapprove the ETS under the Congressional Review Act, which allows Congress to strike down regulations if both chambers and the president agree. The House version of the resolution was co-sponsored by 173 members.

Implementation and enforcement of the ETS is delayed pending further court order. Litigation will determine if the ETS is upheld, modified or struck down. If all or part of the ETS is upheld, the implementation and compliance requirements will be determined by the 6th Circuit or the U.S. Supreme Court.

For more information on the ETS, including guidelines for its implementation, visit SHRM’s COVID-19 vaccination resources center.
