President Biden’s recent vaccine mandates are an enormous overreach that I am firmly against. They have created more uncertainty for employers and employees when clear communication is vital to supporting a strong economy. I will continue to monitor legal challenges to these mandates and communicate with state officials. In the meantime, I have compiled the following information that may be helpful in answering questions related to vaccine requirements. Please do not hesitate to reach out to my office with any additional questions you may have.
For updated information on vaccine requirements and exemptions:
Information from the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on Americans:
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) emergency temporary standard (ETS) establishes binding requirements to protect unvaccinated employees of large employers.
More information from the U.S. Department of Labor on these standards can be found here:
