In violation of the U.S. Constitution, Biden charged the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to create a rule that all employers with 100 employees or more must have a fully "vaccinated" staff or face stiff fines.
At the same time, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) at the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) implemented a requirement that forced health care workers at facilities participating in Medicare and Medicaid to be fully "vaccinated" or lose their jobs.2
The deadline for both of these policies was January 4, 2022. As predicted, OSHA wasted no time before suggesting that the policy might be expanded to companies with fewer than 100 employees as well.
Court Permanently Blocks OSHA 'Vaccine' Rule
Fortunately, 10 days later, November 14, 2021, a Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals permanently blocked OSHA from implementing and enforcing its COVID jab rule, on the basis that the emergency temporary standard (ETS) exceeded the scope of OSHA's authority and/or was unconstitutional.
Challenges have been filed in several federal courts, however, so the legal fight is far from over.3 What's more, while OSHA has complied with the court's decision, suspending its ETS and any activities related to it, the Biden administration is brazenly encouraging employers to implement the suspended rule nonetheless.4 It's lawless beyond belief, so employers would be wise to think long and hard before following such dictates.
