Supreme Court Blocks Vaccine Mandate for Large Employers

January 13. 2022 – The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled against President Joe Biden’s vaccine mandate for large employers (over 100 employees) following a hearing last Friday yet ruled to keep a mandate in place for most health care workers.

In its ruling in National Federation of Independent Business, et al. v. Department of Labor, Occupational Safety and Health Administration, et al., the court granted the applications to stay the OSHA rule mandating that employers with at least 100 employees require covered workers to receive a COVID–19 vaccine or undergo weekly testing.

In Joseph R. Biden, Jr., President of the United States, et al. v. Missouri, et al., the court ruled the government’s vaccine mandate for workers at federally funded health care facilities that accept Medicare and Medicaid can take effect.
