At the direction of Pres. Biden, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration rolled out rules for workplace vaccinations. This order applies to companies with 100 or more employees and will affect 84 million workers. There is some leeway for those refusing to be vaccinated: they can get tested for Covid weekly and work so long as they test negative, they can remain on the job. In response, Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is suing OSHA. Cameron said, “We are taking the issue of federal overreach seriously and will protect the livelihoods of countless Kentuckians and Kentucky businesses from overbroad mandates.” Cameron’s counterparts in Ohio and Tennessee are also joining the lawsuit. The deadline for workplace compliance is January 4.
