NCA Signs Coalition Comments on OSHA ETS
This week, NCA has agreed to sign onto comments being filed by the Coalition for Workplace Safety on the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) emergency temporary standard (ETS) requiring either vaccines or weekly testing for employees in workplaces with 100 or more workers. The comments have not yet been filed, but they raise concerns about the process by which OSHA promulgated the ETS, compliance burdens for employers and other issues anticipated due to implementation of the ETS. There have been more than 30 suits filed against the ETS and a federal court has issued a stay on implementation until legal issues are resolved. Among the legal issues to be determined is whether the agency has the authority to issue such an order under current law. NCA will continue to keep members updated on the matter.
