Minnesota OSHA suspends enforcement of vaccination and testing rule

Minnesota OSHA (MNOSHA) has announced that it will suspend enforcement of the state’s emergency temporary standard (ETS), which requires that employers with 100 or more employees ensure that employees either be vaccinated against COVID-19 or produce a weekly negative test.

 

The Details:

 

The state’s ETS is identical to a federal ETS issued in late 2021. On January 13, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court blocked the federal government from enforcing the federal ETS pending future court proceedings. Shortly after the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision was released, MNOSHA announced it will suspend enforcement of the state ETS pending future developments.

 

Next Steps:

 

If you have 100 or more employees and fall within the requirements of the state ETS, watch for developments closely. For now, MNSOHA won’t enforce the state ETS but strongly encourages employers to continue to implement the requirements of the ETS.
