Biden’s private business vaccine mandate begins Jan. 4 — with $14K per penalty
President Biden’s private-sector COVID-19 vaccine mandate will take effect Jan. 4, administration officials said Thursday — with fines of up to $14,000 per infraction for employers that don’t comply.
The regulation is likely to be challenged in court, but a Biden administration official said on a press call that the rule overrides any state policy against coronavirus vaccine mandates.
The mandate applies to businesses with 100 or more employees — or about 84 million people, officials said.
Employers will need to adopt policies that either require all workers to get their final vaccine shot by Jan. 4 or policies that allow unvaccinated workers to keep their jobs if they submit to weekly testing and mask-wearing.
The Jan. 4 deadline also will apply to two other Biden vaccine mandates impacting federal contractors and about 17 million health care workers, with certain medical and religious exemptions. There’s a Dec. 8 compliance deadline for people employed directly by the federal government. --->READ MORE HERE
More Than 39 GOP Senators File to Stop Biden's Employer Vaccine Mandate:
More than 39 GOP senators formally moved forward Wednesday to end President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate on private companies and their employees under the Congressional Review Act.
Biden is expected to issue a rule to make the COVID-19 vaccine mandate requirements official for private businesses with more than 100 employees, in a move that will impact more than 80 million Americans.
Those who refuse to comply could face $14,000 fines.
“President Biden is playing a game of chicken with Oklahomans’ lives and livelihoods. No one should have to choose between their job and their personal health care decisions,” Oklahoma Republican Sen. James Lankford said in a statement. --->READ MORE HERE
