COVID-19 Testing Requirements for Employers
OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard requires employers with 100+ employees to mandate vaccination or weekly COVID-19 testing. We can help. We have partnered with Genetworx to offer testing programs to employers.
Here are a few key takeaways:
1. All private businesses with over 100 employees will be required to give their workers paid time off to get vaccinated. If businesses do not comply, the government will “take enforcement actions,” which could include “substantial fines” of up to nearly $14,000 per violation.
2. Covered employers must develop, implement, and enforce a mandatory COVID-19 vaccination policy, unless they adopt a policy requiring employees to choose either to get vaccinated or to undergo regular COVID-19 testing and wear a face covering to work
3. The ETS also requires employers to provide paid time to workers to get vaccinated and paid sick leave to recover from any side effects
