Federal Contractors—COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements

On Sept. 9, President Biden announced his Path Out of the Pandemic: COVID-19 Action Plan and signed Executive Order 14042, Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors. As required by the EO, the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force recently issued guidance on COVID-19 Workplace Safety: Guidance for Federal Contractors and Subcontractors. According to the guidance, covered federal contractor employees must be fully vaccinated by Dec. 8, unless the covered federal contractor is legally required to provide an accommodation for medical or religious reasons.
