President Biden’s government-contractor vaccine mandate blocked by nationwide freeze
Following on the heels of a recent ruling that froze President Biden’s government-contractor vaccine mandate in just a few states, the District Court for the Southern District of Georgia has issued a nationwide freeze against that mandate. The mandate would have imposed vaccination requirements on certain federal government contractors and their employees.
This nationwide freeze mirrors another blocking the OSHA rule that would have implemented President Biden’s vaccine mandate for large employers.
Employers are reminded that either or both freezes are part of on-going litigation and could be lifted at any time.
