On September 9, the President published
Executive Order 14042which applies new rules – including vaccination regulations – to federal contractors. This rule is different and separate (and stricter than) the OSHA rule that applies to large companies; especially because this federal contractor mandate does NOT include a weekly test option and is therefore a real vaccination mandate. The rule defines “federal contractor” VERY broadly. As a result, the rule is likely to cover many industries. The implementation of the requirements of the rule requires direct coordination and support from the HR departments of each company. Sheppard Mullins Government Contracts Group has worked diligently in this area since the announcement of the Executive Order and its Task Force Guidance and has developed an Executive Order 14042 Survival Guide that answers many of the questions related to the EO and the guidelines. It also includes insights from Sheppard Mullin’s Labor & Employment Group on the practical implications of the rule. While not much is known about how the EO and guidelines will be implemented, check out our Executive Order 14042 Survival Guide: An Analysis of What We Know, What We Think and What We Don’t Know About President Biden’s COVID-19 Executive Order for Federal Contractors is here to answer questions and provide additional insights.
