"OSHA COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard," Davis Wright Tremaine Webinar
The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has published its much talked-about and controversial Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) regarding COVID-19 vaccination and testing. This new federal regulation is broad in its application and will impose additional, substantial compliance obligations on many employers.
In this webinar, DWT partners Joseph Hoag and Jeffrey Youmans, associate Arielle Spinner, and counsel Michael Goettig discussed the scope of the ETS and other important aspects of guidance including:
- Who does the ETS apply to?
- When does the ETS take effect?
- What are the ETS's vaccination obligations?
- How does the testing aspect work?
- What are the new recordkeeping and notification obligations?
- What else does the ETS require?
- How (and when) does the ETS apply to states like California and Washington that have their own state-plans?
- What is the status of litigation challenges to the ETS?
The program consisted of one hour of substantive presentation, followed by a question and answer period. Attendees were encouraged to submit questions in advance of this webinar.
