OSHA Officials Discuss New Business Rules for Covid-19 Vaccine

(Farmington) The Biden administration continues to urge private businesses to follow new rules for COVID-19 vaccines even though a federal court has temporarily halted the order.

Jim Frederick is the Deputy Assistant Labor Secretary.

He says the agency expects that most businesses will comply. And if not….

The top lawyer for the Labor Department, Seema Nanda explains the timeline.

Then, after 60 days, on January 4th, employers must begin either checking for vaccinations, confirm negative tests and unvaccinated workers must wear a mask.

Frederick says there is nothing in the federal rules to stop businesses from firing workers who do not comply.

But there are rules for helping workers get vaccinated.
