The Woodlands, TX, Nov. 10, 2021
OSHA’s new Emergency Temporary Standard on Vaccination and Testing requires covered businesses with 100 or more employees to ensure every worker is fully vaccinated, with paid time to get the vaccine and paid sick leave to recover from any side effects. Unvaccinated workers must undergo weekly testing and wear a face covering. The E.T.S. will affect more than 84 million employees nationwide, and covered employers have until December 5, 2021, to comply with all other requirements, such as providing paid leave for vaccination and requiring face coverings for unvaccinated workers.
Chief Legal and Human Resources Officer Chuck Kable states, “From day one, Axiom Medical listened to the needs of organizations struggling to understand COVID 19, how it impacts their employees and corporate culture. We will continue to help organizations create the policies, technology, and case management solutions to keep their employees safe and operations thriving.”
