Overview (Program Summary)
Our panel will provide a practical look at a variety of COVID-19 compliance issues involving the OSHA Emergency Temporary Standard (“ETS”), federal contractor rules for COVID-19 vaccinations, industry-specific COVID-19 vaccination rules, and state-specific issues. We will provide our best answers at this point in this fast-changing area. This panel will focus on practical issues and how to navigate some of the complications of the myriad of rules that might apply to employers, including those with operations in multiple jurisdictions. We will address OSHA enforcement issues involved with COVID-19 issues, and—if there is time—other health and safety issues, such as the forthcoming OSHA heat illness standard.
