The U.S. Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has suspended the implementation and enforcement of its controversial vaccine mandate just days after a federal court temporarily blocked the rule, citing “grave statutory and constitutional issues.”
OSHA announced it would “suspend activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the [Emergency Temporary Standard] pending future developments in the litigation,” according to OSHA’s website.
The administration’s backdown comes less than a week after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued and reaffirmed an explosive motion to freeze the vaccine mandate prompted by the Biden administration. On Nov. 12, the court ordered that OSHA “take no steps to implement or enforce” the mandate “until further court order.”
The rule affects more than 80 million working Americans, 31.7 million of whom are unvaccinated, and requires employers with 100 or more workers to mandate the vaccine or weekly testing. If employees refuse to comply, they risk losing their jobs. (Read more from “OSHA Suspends Biden Vaccine Mandate After Legal Pushback” HERE)
