OSHA Complies With Court Order, Suspends Biden Vaccine Mandate Implementation

Being that Surrender Joe is a Democrat, and Democrats rarely care what courts say when the court rules against them, especially since Joe was Obama’s VP, and Obama did that quite a bit, will Joe decide to blow off the court and attempt to force some sort of implementation?

OSHA suspends implementation of Biden’s COVID vaccine mandate until further court order
The mandate could be tied up in court beyond the Jan. 4 deadline OSHA set for employers

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has put on hold the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for U.S. employers with 100 employees or more, after being told by a court last week that it must do so.

The Department of Labor, which oversees OSHA, told Fox News Wednesday the agency has suspended the implementation and enforcement of the mandate while it remains tied up in court.

In an update on its website on Wednesday, OSHA noted that last week “the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit granted a motion to stay OSHA’s COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard” and “ordered that OSHA ‘take no steps to implement or enforce’ the ETS ‘until further court order.’”

The statement adds, “While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation.”

The big part is the subhead, that the litigation could go long past that January 4th deadline, which could be as important as winning in court. If the suits lose, what if the final decision by the Supreme Court comes next March? Or June? And the Chinese coronavirus is not raging through the country? There would be no need for the rule, and it would show the rule was never needed.

A big question is, is OSHA getting their plans in place and getting their ducks in a row, or, have they given up all work on the mandate for the time? Some articles I’ve read on this make that case, others just go with the OSHA statement

Last week, the White House urged businesses impacted by the mandate to continue following with the administration’s paused diktat in spite of the Fifth Circuit’s ruling.

White House deputy press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said during a briefing following the decision that “People should not wait,” adding, “They should continue to move forward and make sure they’re getting their workplace vaccinated.”

Will the Brandon admin attempt some backdoor shenanigans? I guess we’ll see.

I still recommend people get vaccinated.
