Attempts to Obstruct Biden’s Vaccine for Private Businesses Go to the US Supreme Court

Attempts to Obstruct Biden's Vaccine for Private Businesses Go to the US Supreme Court

Three companies and one red state attorney general ask US Supreme Court to leave Biden’s unconditional mandate

Three companies and the Missouri attorney general are asking the US Supreme Court (SCOTUS) to suspend the Biden administration’s vaccine orders for private businesses with 100 or more employees.

Three companies – Phillips Manufacturing & Tower Company, Sixarp LLC and Oberg Industries LLC – filed an emergency (pdf) injunction on Friday, saying the Biden administration is seeking unrestricted federal executive power over vaccinations for private businesses.

“There is no dispute between the parties over a shared commitment to ending the COVID-19 pandemic,” the statement said. “The arguments put forward by the executive branch do not recognize any recognizable restrictions on the federal executive branch.”

“Frustrated by the medical choices of a minority of Americans, the executive has attempted to monitor and track vaccination schedules for vast sections of the nation’s population,” the appendix added.

The three companies, each with more than 100 employees, will have to fulfill the vaccine mandate if it is not stopped by the courts.

Meanwhile, the vaccine mandate will also jeopardize companies’ already struggling recruitment efforts, the three complainants said in a statement.

Eric Schmitt, Missouri’s attorney general, also asked SCOTUS to suspend the Biden administration’s unrestricted vaccine mandate.

“This has always been destined for the country’s highest court, and I will continue to fight this breathtaking coup,” he wrote in a Twitter post.

The Epoch Times reached out to SCOTUS, the Biden administration, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) for comment.

It is the latest attempt by some companies and red states to stop President Joe Biden’s mandate to vaccinate private companies after it was authorized by the US Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals to go into effect late Friday.

The OSHA vaccine requirements for private businesses meant that about 84 million American workers faced the January 4 vaccine deadline before it was suspended.

According to the rule, employees who are not fully vaccinated will have to wear masks and be tested weekly for the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus, which causes COVID-19. Exceptions will apply to those who work outdoors or at home.

The OSHA rule faces fines of up to $ 13,600 for violation. He also faces a $ 13,600 a day fine if the employer does not remedy the violation. OSHA can impose fines of up to $ 136,000 for willful or serious misconduct.

Following a ruling from the Sixth District Court, OSHA set January 10 as the deadline for companies with 100 or more employees to comply with this rule.

OSHA said in a statement Saturday that until January 10, the company will not put forward links to companies for failing to comply with any Biden administration’s requirements for vaccine or COVID-19 testing for private companies that employ 100 or more people. do not give out any links for not meeting mandate requirements for testing before February 9th.
