WMC Applauds Supreme Court’s Stay of OSHA Vaccine & Testing Mandate
WMC applauded the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to stay OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) requiring employers with 100 or more employees to mandate COVID-19 vaccinations and testing.
“Wisconsin businesses can breathe a sigh of relief that the Supreme Court has stayed this unlawful and unworkable mandate,” said WMC President & CEO Kurt R. Bauer. “If enacted, employers would face untold financial costs to comply with this ETS and an unprecedented number of workers would walk off the job in the middle of a historic workforce shortage.”
WMC previously filed an amicus brief with the Sixth Circuit in this case arguing that OSHA does not have the authority to implement such a rule, and detailing the significant and irreparable harm it would have on Wisconsin businesses and workers if it took effect.
