What to Do When OSHA Releases Its Emergency Temporary Standard for Mandatory Employee Vaccinations

Events / Friday, November 5, 2021

On Friday, Nov. 5, BakerHostetler attorneys Amy Traub, Jay Seegers and Nancy Inesta presented a webinar on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)'s newly released Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) requiring employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their workers are fully vaccinated or tested weekly for COVID-19. The webinar addressed important issues such as:

  • How long employers will have to come into compliance with the ETS.
  • Whether employers will be required to provide paid time off for vaccinations, testing and recovery from post-vaccination effects.
  • What record-keeping and reporting requirements employers will have to adhere to.
  • What to do if the ETS conflicts with state or city law, including but not limited to state OSHA regulations.
  • Whether and what exemptions will be allowed.
  • What proofs of vaccination will be acceptable.
  • Whether and what penalties will be assessed for noncompliance.
