NDIA Webinar: The Federal Contractor and OSHA Vaccine Mandates – Where Things Stand in Light of Current Legal Proceedings
January 6, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Presented by McCarter & English
In light of a December 7, 2021 nationwide injunction issued by a court in Georgia (upheld by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals), the Federal Safer Workforce Task Force, OMB, and key agencies have announced that the Government will take no action to enforce clauses implementing the federal contractor vaccine mandate and workplace protocols. Meanwhile, the 6th Circuit Court of Appeals reinstated the OSHA mandate applicable to all businesses with 100 employees or more. While a hearing has been scheduled before the U.S. Supreme Court this Friday to consider a stay, OSHA has announced revised compliance deadlines. Tens of thousands of contractors have developed policies designed to ensure full vaccination by January 18, 2022 and establish workplace protocols required by the FAR and DFARS clauses mandated by agency class deviations. McCarter & English partners Dan Kelly and Hugh Murray will walk you through the implications of and answer key questions concerning the ongoing legal proceedings involving the federal contractor and OSHA vaccine mandates, the continuing obligations of contractors and subcontractors, and the implications of state and municipal statutes and orders either prohibiting or requiring vaccine mandates.
