Testing and Vaccination Mandates of the Banking Industry - COVID Executive Order

Based on the recent decision by the US appeals court affirmation of hold on the Biden COVID-19 vaccine mandate we have cancelled our upcoming “Testing and Vaccination Mandates of the Banking Industry - COVID Executive Order” webinar. Our goal is to deliver accurate, valuable and actionable information, and we felt it was necessary to postpone this webinar event at this time.

OSHA released its Emergency Temporary Standard on November 4, which includes significant obligations for Banks with 100 or more employees. The Administration also clarified the scope and timing of mandated vaccinations under the Biden COVID Executive Order, which could apply more broadly. The required weekly COVID testing and the required vaccination status, generally become effective on January 4, 2022. However, the other obligations in the OSHA Standard, become effective on December 5. The OSHA Standard includes requirements for a specific policy, response procedures, vaccination status surveys, and employee communications. These items were not suggested in information supplied by the administration or OSHA up to this point.

In this session, we will focus very specifically on how these duties apply to the banking industry, with the most up-to-date information. We will also provide model forms and documents, corresponding to the requirements detailed on November 4. This session will also include time for questions to address specific areas of interest.
