Federal Contractor Vaccine Mandate

Pursuant to Executive Order 1402, issued September 9, 2021, and the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force (“Task Force”) Guidance for Federal Contractors and Subcontractors Guidance, updated November 10, 2021, Federal Contractors and Subcontractors with a covered contract will be required to conform to the following workplace safety protocols:

  1. COVID-19 vaccination of covered contractor employees, except in limited circumstances
    where an employee is legally entitled to an accommodation;
  2. Compliance by individuals, including covered contractor employees and visitors, with the
    Guidance related to masking and physical distancing while in covered contractor
    workplaces; and
  3. Designation by covered contractors of a person or persons to coordinate COVID-19
    workplace safety efforts at covered contractor workplaces.

Recent litigation related to the stay of the OSHA Private Employer mandate does not affect employers subject to the OSHA Federal Contractor mandate or the CMS mandate.

Federal contractor employees must have received the second doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccinations or the one dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine by January 4, 2022, in order to be considered fully vaccinated by January 18, 2022, and in compliance with Executive Order and the Task Force Guidance.
