Recorded Webinars | Legal
Recorded November 19, 2021
Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) just released its emergency temporary standard (ETS) requiring employers with 100+ employees to either mandate the vaccine or test their employees for COVID-19 on a weekly basis. On the same day, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) announced the details of its requirement that healthcare workers at facilities participating in Medicare and Medicaid are fully vaccinated.
This webinar will provide details on the scope of OSHA’s ETS and CMS’ mandate, what each rule requires, and a timeline for implementing the requirements of each rule. This webinar will also provide a discussion on the overlap of OSHA healthcare ETS and its vaccine or test ETS.
