ALEXANDRIA, Va.—Last week, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a requirement that employers with 100 or more employees mandate that all of their employees be fully vaccinated no later than January 4, 2022, or they must implement a policy allowing for weekly testing. The rule also requires that all unvaccinated workers wear a face mask on the job and submit to weekly testing.
Although the mandate is on hold for now, retailers need to be prepared if and when it takes effect. NACS is offering a webinar on the OSHA vaccine rule on Friday, Nov. 12, at 1:00 p.m. ET.
NACS will answer the following questions among others:
- Do you need offer paid leave for testing?
- What tests will satisfy the requirement?
- Do you have to pay for weekly testing for unvaccinated employees?
- How long do you need to keep vaccination records?
Join Jon Taets, NACS government relations director, and Doug Kantor, NACS general counsel, to discuss what the rules mean for the convenience industry and answer. Register today.
