HCAOA Associate Member Littler has compiled a one-stop chart (current as of 12/13/21) that provides basic information on vaccination mandates issued at the federal and statewide levels. It covers directives that affect public or private entities as employers.
This chart also includes information about state responses to the (currently enjoined) vaccine-or-test emergency temporary standard (ETS), which was released on November 4, 2021 by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). That information will be provided only for states that have workplace safety and health programs approved by OSHA. States with approved plans are required to adopt standards that are at least as effective as (even if not identical to) OSHA’s standards.
This post does not address local guidance, orders that relate to customer or patron vaccination status (e.g., “vaccine passports”), narrower mandates specific only to schools or educational institutions, or recommendations that do not impose obligations.
