Frank C. Morris, Jr., Member of the Firm in the Litigation, Employee Benefits & Executive Compensation, and Employment, Labor & Workforce Management practices, in the firm’s Washington, DC, office, was quoted in the Bloomberg Law Daily Labor Report, in “‘Full Speed Ahead’ on Health Worker Jabs After High Court Ruling,” by Allie Reed.

Following is an excerpt:

Health-care facilities across the U.S. must once again work toward complying with a Biden administration vaccine mandate, attorneys who advise hospitals and other medical providers said in the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision to allow the requirement to move forward.

Lower courts had blocked the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services from enforcing the mandate in 25 states, causing many health facilities to take a wait-and-see approach to requiring their employees to be fully vaccinated.

With the court’s 5-4 decision on Thursday, health-care providers should be “full speed ahead” in their efforts to comply with the requirement, said Frank Morris Jr., a member of Epstein Becker & Green.
