KACo Leadership Institute: COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Requirements for Employers

This page includes links to resources related to the KACo Leadership Institute course held on Nov. 30, 2021 about employer vaccination and testing requirements.

On Nov. 4, 2021, the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced a federal emergency temporary standard (ETS) detailing requirements for employers with 100 or more employees to ensure each of their workers is fully vaccinated by Jan. 4, 2022 or tests for COVID-19 on at least a weekly basis. On Nov. 6, 2021, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans issued a stay of OSHA’s ETS. This webinar provided an update on vaccination and testing requirements for employers, including if your county is required to comply, and the status of the stay.
