  2. This week, we look at the COVID-19 vaccination requirements for federal contractors and how the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) is creating a more expansive view of the employment relationship.

    Employers Prepare for Biden’s Expansive Vaccine Mandate

    The full impact of President Biden’s COVID-19 action plan is sinking in for employers. The Safer Federal Workforce Task Force released guidance for federal contractors and subcontractors requiring vaccinations for most employees of federal contractors by December 8.

    Vaccine Mandate Pushback Begins

    The vaccine mandates initiated by President Biden are already seeing court challenges. Federal workers filed a lawsuit September 23, and more challenges are expected as the new federal requirements may conflict with some state laws. At least 24 state attorneys general have announced their intent to sue in anticipation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s Emergency Temporary Standard.

    Reach of NLRA Could Soon Expand

    The NLRB is beginning to show the impact of the Biden administration’s more expansive view of the employment relationship under the National Labor Relations Act.

  4. This week, we look at significant developments for employers from across the federal government, including at the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), and the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).

    OSHA Readies Vaccine Mandate ETS

    President Biden is embracing vaccine mandates in his new COVID-19 action plan. Among other mandates, the plan includes a new OSHA-enforced requirement that employers with 100 or more employees mandate vaccines or test employees weekly.

    SEC Whistleblower Program Tops $1 Billion in Awards

    Last week, the SEC announced two whistleblower awards that totaled $114 million. With these awards, the SEC’s whistleblower program has now awarded over $1 billion to whistleblowers since its first award in 2012. “For employers, this is a clarion call that you need to embrace best practices and training,” said attorney Greg Keating in The Wall Street Journal.
