CORONAVÍRUS People who work in companies with more than a hundred employees must be vaccinated: the court ruled

CORONAVÍRUS People who work in companies with more than a hundred employees must be vaccinated: the court ruled

The regulation was due to enter into force on January 4, 2022. However, after Friday’s decision, it is not clear when it will actually take effect. According to the Associated Press, the case was handled by a court in which judges appointed by Republican presidents are dominated. One of the judges who voted in favor of the statute was appointed by the Democratic president, and the other was appointed by the Republican. The judge who voted against him was appointed by former Republican President Donald Trump.

The attorney general will ask the Supreme Court to block the regulation

Judge Julia Smith Gibbons made clear in her opinion that the US Occupational Safety and Health Agency (OSHA), which is covered by the regulation, has the necessary authority to control non-isolated infectious diseases in the workplace. Meanwhile, Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Routledge said she would ask the Supreme Court to stop the order.

This measure aims to cover approximately 84 million Americans

The measure, first introduced by US President Joe Biden in September, is expected to cover about 84 million Americans working for medium and large-sized businesses. Exceptions apply to those who work outside or from home only.

They have the right to request an exception

The rule must also apply to 17 million health professionals or caregivers – but there will be no substitute for regular testing and they will have to be vaccinated, but they will have the right to request an exemption on medical or religious grounds.
