What we know and learn – and what changes rapidly – with the coronavirus health pandemic is an ongoing challenge for all. Take a peek at this helpful update on a variety of the new, changing and pending COVID-19 rules and guidance for employers – from the OSHA vaccine or test and CMS healthcare mandates to isolation and quarantine period recommendations.

Read on for this important update from MI Chamber member and law firm Butzel Long:

“Much has developed during the holiday season. Courts moved back and forth on various vaccine mandates, the federal government halted implementation of vaccine deadlines or pushed them back, the CDC changed the isolation and quarantine period and days later announced consideration of adding testing, the EEOC provided new guidance on “long COVID” and COVID-19 complications, and rumors circulated that the DOL will issue guidance on wage and hour issues related to COVID-19 testing. This Alert serves to help employers track these changes in a time of legal uncertainty.

This Client Alert will discuss:

  • CDC Shortens Isolation and Quarantine Periods
  • OHSA ETS Vaccine Mandate for Large Employers
  • Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) Vaccine Mandate for Healthcare
  • Federal Contractor Vaccine Mandate
  • EEOC’s Updated Guidance on COVID-19 Disabilities
