ACC NCR The Latest on the Federal Contractor Vaccine Mandate
Executive Order 14042 (the Covid-19 vaccine mandate for Federal contractors) has been a wild ride. First, there was the President’s speech hinting at a vaccination mandate for federal contractors. That was followed quickly by an EO alluding to forthcoming Guidance and contract clauses. Then a clause appeared with a “dynamic” self-updating twist, and a December compliance deadline (which then was changed to a January 4th deadline, and then was clarified to be a January 18th deadline). A court in Kentucky quickly enjoined enforcement of the EO – but only in three states. A court in Georgia followed by enjoining the EO nationwide. Now appeals are pending in various circuit courts. Feeling a little whiplash? Join the club.
Our panelists will provide up to the minute status of the enforceability of EO 14042 and the pending (and by March, maybe decided) legal challenges to the EO. Also, they will provide best practices for Federal contractors struggling to comply with the various vaccination/masking requirements in place across the county (whether the Federal EO is being enforced or not).
Presented by Jonathan Aronie and Ryan Roberts, Partners from Sheppard Mullin and an in-house panelist.
