Biden Vaccine Mandate for Federal Contractors Blocked Nationwide

Source: Bloomberg Law

The Biden administrationís mandate for federal contractorsí employees to be vaccinated will be halted nationwide, amid a slew of challenges from states that say the president overstepped his authority in requiring the Covid-19 shots.

The mandate, which was set to take effect on Jan. 4, applies to roughly a quarter of the U.S. workforce and affects companies that do business with the federal government, including Lockheed Martin Corp., Microsoft Corp., Alphabet Inc.Ďs Google, and General Motors Co.

A federal judge in Georgia blocked the mandate on Tuesday. The latest order follows a Kentucky federal judgeís grant last week of a preliminary injunction in a lawsuit involving Kentucky, Tennessee, and Ohio.

Numerous challenges to those mandates are pending in appellate courts, and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has temporarily halted enforcement of the OSHA regulation. The Sixth Circuit is poised to consider the consolidated challenges to the OSHA rule.

Sure, halt this, but don't halt the Texas bounty hunter program.

6. Yes

I was hoping I'd be wrong about how it played out. I never dreamed there were so many idiots in our country, willing to kill and die for no good reason.

12. I would have thought anti-vaxxers are the minority.

Instead they're a huge majority and they're closely aligned with the MAGA crowd. And I suspect that Facebook shit posting has a huge factor in how this whole thing is playing out. I swear that Facebook is the reason why we can't have nice things.

3. I work for a contractor

My company already mandated vaccination as a condition of employment and I would guess they're not the only ones.

8. Are the mandates for federal employees banned too?

Also, so this means RR companies like CSX,Norfolk Southern, etc will not be able to require their employees to be vaccinated???My husband was working for RR when pandemic hit. They were not requiring masks or anything. He had enough years to get partial retirement from them so he quit (already has military retirement). ANYWAY, Iím still in a RR wives group. They were all swearing up and down that their husband would quit (without full retirement when it is their only retirement) so I wanted to see if that was all talk. Now they are all happy that they can continue to spread covid around. 🙄 One could not wait to hop on there to post a Newsmax link.

9. Wow, the courts act quickly when the GQP wants something,

yet for a simple misdemeanor trial for Steve Bannon he gets to stay on his pod cast and continue on with the coup until his mid-July trial, which will be appealed if he loses, etc., etc., etc.

17. Tonight I Got My Covid Booster Shot

There must have been at least 350 people, mostly school children, waiting in line for shots. Apparently this new variety has spooked a lot of people. Good.

18. To my mind

the point of the mandate was to provide cover for companies who probably wanted to do this anyway. There is no profit in having to shut down production to prevent an outbreak among staff. Outbreaks probably also hit the bottom line in health insurance premiums. It costs employers next to nothing to require vaccines, and likely ensures consistent predictable production.

It is likely that just having it pending in litigation is sufficient cover for most.
