Understanding How Vaccine Mandates
Impact Trucking

The Biden Administration recently announced OSHA will be issuing an emergency temporary standard requiring the vaccination or weekly COVID-19 testing of all employees for employers with 100 or more employees, absent a need to accommodate a disability or religious belief. Similarly, in the near future, in order to have a federal contractor, federal contractors will be required to mandate that their employees receive a COVID 19 vaccination, including the companies they contract with.

 

This webinar will review the status of these new mandates, what is needed to comply, and the religious and medical exemptions available under the law.  The webinar will be presented by Tom Revnew, employment law attorney and partner with Peters, Revnew, Kappenman & Anderson, P.A..
