OSHA ETS Stay Lifted
On Friday, December 17, 2021, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit lifted the stay blocking OSHA from implementing and enforcing the Private Employer Emergency Temporary Standard (“ETS”). OSHA has announced it will begin implementing and enforcing the requirements of the ETS with modified deadlines. This decision does not affect the national stay placed on the Federal Contractor mandate or the Missouri and Louisiana injunctions enjoining the CMS mandate in twenty-five (25) states, including Kansas.
Who must comply with OSHA’s ETS:
Opponents of the ETS have petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court for review. HR Partners will continue to keep clients advised on new developments and updated guidance, as they are released. Please do not hesitate to contact us regarding the ETS, COVID-19, or any other HR-related issues.
