US Department of Labor Issues Emergency Temporary Standard

by: Lindsey Dutkiewicz

On Sept. 9, US President Biden announced that the US Dept. of Labor will issue an Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) requiring employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their employees either get vaccinated against COVID-19 or undergo weekly testing.   

When published in the Federal Register, the ETS will become effective immediately in states under OSHA jurisdiction.  The 22 states with State OSHA plans will have 30 days to issue rules at least as effective as the federal ETS standard.

Watch OSHA’s website for details.
