Keith Wilkes in EHS Today - US Requires Vaccine-or-Test Mandate for Private Employers
September 10, 2021
The White House didn’t say when the rule will go into effect. Keith Wilkes, a labor and employment partner at national law firm Hall Estill, predicts it won’t take long, based on its resemblance to an earlier order for government workers.
“Although the timing of when the ETS requirement will go into effect is not clear, it will likely not be a long wait. The federal government did its legal homework before implementing the same mandate, via executive order, for federal employees in July,” Wilkes wrote in an email.
