Update: OSHA ETS Vaccine Mandate Withdrawn
As you know, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), released on November 5, originally required all employers with 100 or more employees to ensure their employees are fully vaccinated by January 4, 2022, although it allowed employers to offer employees a weekly testing option as an alternative.

OSHA is now withdrawing the rule as an enforceable ETS, but the rule will still serve as a proposed rule. OSHA will continue with the rulemaking process as it considers a permanent standard. OSHA has moved to dismiss the Sixth Circuit appeal as moot in light of its withdrawal of the ETS. OSHA’s motion to dismiss will not necessarily be granted, however, and among other considerations, there may or may not be potential liability for any past noncompliance.
