Biden Purports to Order Contractor Vaccinations But Key Details Are Missing

Thursday, September 9, 2021

CWC members are most likely aware that today President Biden announced several initiatives designed to increase the COVID-19 vaccination rate in the United States. These include an Executive Order (E.O.) that the White House describes as mandating vaccinations for federal contractor employees.

Unfortunately, at this time the documents released by the White House have raised more questions than answers as key compliance questions depend on forthcoming guidance from the White House. CWC is carefully studying the E.O. and related material and will release a more complete analysis early next week.
