OSHA has suspended the implementation and enforcement of the Biden regime’s covid jab mandate for businesses following two setbacks in court.

From The Epoch Times, “OSHA Suspends Enforcement of Vaccine Mandate After Court Block”:

The Labor Department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has suspended the enforcement of the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private businesses.

The announcement came shortly after a U.S. appeals court rejected a challenge by the Biden administration on Nov. 12 and reaffirmed its decision to put on hold OSHA’s mandate, which requires that businesses with 100 employees or more ensure that workers either be vaccinated against COVID-19 by Jan. 4, 2022, or be tested weekly and wear a mask.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans stated in an opinion that OSHA’s mandate is “staggeringly overbroad,” and ordered it to “take no steps to implement or enforce the Mandate until further court order.”

The court had previously issued a temporary halt to the mandate on Nov. 6 pending litigation.

“The court ordered that OSHA ‘take no steps to implement or enforce’ the ETS ‘until further court order.’ While OSHA remains confident in its authority to protect workers in emergencies, OSHA has suspended activities related to the implementation and enforcement of the ETS pending future developments in the litigation,” the Labor Department affirmed in a statement in recognition of the court’s ruling.

“Companies should cease implementation of Biden’s OSHA vaccine mandate, because OSHA itself has ceased,” Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie said Wednesday after the news came out.
