OSHA to Pull Employee Vaccine Mandate After Supreme Court Defeat

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is planning to withdraw its order for private businesses with over 100 employees to be vaccinated against Covid-19 or undergo regular testing after suffering a crippling defeat from the Supreme Court.

According to The Daily Caller:

OSHA will formally withdraw the rule on Wednesday, according to a document published Tuesday in an advanced version of the Federal Register. The rule, announced in November by President Joe Biden, was immediately challenged by several states and private companies, and the Supreme Court issued a stay on Jan. 13 while federal appeals courts consider its legality.

“After evaluating the Court’s decision, OSHA is withdrawing the Vaccination and Testing ETS as an enforceable emergency temporary standard,” the agency wrote in the Register.

When he announced the rule, Biden argued that it would reduce the spread of COVID-19 by increasing the number of Americans who received vaccinations against the virus. Vaccines are less effective at reducing the spread of the newly-dominant Omicron variant, although they are still effective at preventing hospitalization and death.

“Some of the biggest companies are already requiring this,” Biden said in defending the rule. “United Airlines, Disney, Tyson food and even Fox News.”

Other parts of President Biden’s vaccine mandate have also hit holdups in court. Last week, a federal judge blocked Biden’s vaccine order for federal contractors in Texas.

  1. globalists won’t allow their globalist puppet, chester biden to pull their globalist agenda and globalist agendas .

  2. Come on globalists, just create a coronavirus that causes more deaths than you hoped your last varieties caused and then you won’t need to create 100s of boosters to try to kill all the people .

  3. This is just a head fake so they can try to push the vaccine agenda in another way. It will take THAT mandate several months or longer to wind through the courts and will give the leftist companies cover to enforce vaccines, masks, boosters, whatever they want. Will annual flu vaccines be next? How about mandating weight requirements? Weight and age seem to be most important for covid issues.

  4. Everything about Covid is designed to stick around till Nov 2022 and the general election of 2024. Why do you think they want to change the voting laws?

  5. They better stop the mandate order. I called them and threatened to sue them and have them arrested for violating thee Constitution because mandates are not laws!
