Job Creators Network files legal challenge to mandate saying it’s illegal

The Biden administration on Thursday announced a January deadline for a new private sector vaccine mandate that could affect 100 million Americans. A business group and a free market think tank quickly filed suit, saying the mandate is illegal.

The federal regulation comes from the Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). Biden announced the mandate in September, but this week OSHA released details of the rule, most notably that businesses with 100 or more employees must ensure their workers are vaccinated or require weekly COVID-19 testing by Jan. 4.
