President Biden has called for the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) to develop an “Emergency Temporary Standard” rule that would require employers with 100 or employees to ensure their workforce is fully vaccinated or require any unvaccinated workers to produce a negative COVID-19 test at least once a week before coming to work. While many questions still remain around the OSHA guidelines, employers are giving careful attention to implementing return-to-work strategies that promote both safety and security for employees.

  • Vaccine Mandates: Employer Expectations vs. Employee Attitudes
  • Impact on Health Care Cost: A Point of Agreement
