US Supreme Court suspends OSHA’s private-employer COVID-19 vaccine mandate


The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Ryan Bangert regarding the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision Thursday to halt implementation of the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for large, private employers, issued via the Occupational Safety and Health Administration:

“The Supreme Court correctly concluded that the federal administrative state has no authority to treat unvaccinated employees like workplace hazards and to compel employers to carry out the government’s unlawful national vaccine mandate. The Biden administration’s mandate would have a profoundly negative effect on those employers and the 80 million American workers who are affected, and that is why the Supreme Court was right to immediately halt its enforcement. Sadly, mandating vaccines through an OSHA emergency rule is yet another example of government overreach. Now that the Supreme Court has stayed the mandate, we look forward to pressing forward with our substantive litigation on behalf of the clients we represent in the consolidated cases challenging the mandate at the 6th Circuit.”
