Fran DeLuca, Senior Counsel, co-presents "An Overview of the OSHA ETS" for the Rhode Island Society for Human Resource Management (RISHRM).

On November 5, 2021, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued its long-awaited COVID-19 Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), imposing a number of COVID-19 protocols on employers with 100 or more employees, or approximately two-thirds of the nation’s workforce. The next day, a federal appellate court issued an order temporarily halting the rollout of the ETS nationwide. As employers will have to comply with a number of the ETS’s requirements – including to implement a COVID-19 safety policy, collect employees’ vaccination statuses, and promote vaccination among employees – by December 5, 2021 if the order is lifted, it is critical for them to begin taking steps to comply with the ETS now to avoid a potential OSHA citation in the future.

During this webinar, Fran discusses the ETS’s requirements, practical compliance strategies, and the status of various legal challenges to its provisions pending throughout the country.
