Courts halt vaccine mandate for large businesses

You may not be forced to get vaccinated against COVID-19 if you work at a large company after a court ruling on Friday.


The Biden Administration had previously mandated that employees at businesses with more than 100 employees either had to be vaccinated or be subjected to weekly mandatory testing. The New Orleans-based U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit blocked the mandate's implementation on Friday after Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi and South Carolina brought the case to court. The three-judge panel said the mandate would cause businesses a financial risk in terms of enforcement and testing. The federal government argued that they could issue a mandate based on an OSHA regulation from the 1970s.


The USA Today predicts the case will make its way to the Supreme Court, though the high court has allowed vaccine mandates to move forward at Indiana University and New York City Public Schools in previous decisions.
