BREAKING: OSHA Suspends ‘Implementation and Enforcement’ of Vaccine Mandate After Legal Challenges


The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) within the Department of Labor suspended the “implementation and enforcement” of the White House’s COVID vaccine mandate this week after the order was challenged in the U.S. Court of Appeals.

“On November 12, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard. … The court ordered that OSHA ‘take no steps to implement or enforce’ the ETS ‘until further court order.’ While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation,” posted the agency on its official webpage.

The Biden administration had previously argued the mandate was similar to other safety precautions, like mandatory hard-hats when working on construction sites.

“When this finally gets fully adjudicated, the validity of this requirement will be upheld. If OSHA can tell people to wear hard hats on the job, it can put in place these simple measures to keep our workers safe,” White House Chief of Staff Ron Klain told MSNBC News on Nov. 9.

The President’s order — issued in September — mandated all private businesses with more than 100 employees to require the COVID vaccine for workers with few exemptions. The mandate is scheduled to begin on Jan. 4 pending future legal challenges.

    Suspended doesn’t mean dropped. They’ll implement it later once pandemic 2.0 comes out whic hseems to be under way with the small pox spread that will happen this winter. Ugh im so sick of these fucking disgusting freak globalists

    Unrelated to article but I was asked to wear a mask today at a restaurant and instead requested a water cup so that I would be “actively drinking” and managed to get by without having a mask to the agitation of the employee.

    Only a partial victory
    The Center for Medicare & Medicaid, also has a mandate

  4. unspecialnoob says:

    There’s no way this is constitutional, but I have such little faith in the judicial system that I really worry OSHA will win out in the end.

  5. MaineWolf says:

    BINGO

  6. WeaponizedMemes says:

    The fact that they compare mandating a vaccine to mandating a hard hat is so dishonest that it shows exactly what their real motive is – to weed out those who are ideologically opposed to the Cathedral.

    Irreversible medical procedure ≠ Easily removable outerwear

    One has many studies and easily understandable physical examples of effectiveness along with years of real world examples of effectiveness. The other has many studies on either side of the argument showing its either effective or not without a clear concensus along with many studies being censored.
