The spread of COVID-19 all across the United States impacted the economy badly. The current pandemic severely affected businesses of all scales. To mitigate the COVID risks, it has become more than necessary for businesses to ensure safe entry into their premises. Furthermore, president Joe Biden signed a new executive order which has made vaccinations necessary for US workers. However, the businesses are facing troubles in adhering to the vaccine mandate order. Let’s take a look at the problems faced by American employers and the best possible solutions for them. 

Current problems faced by American Employers

  • No way to ensure whether the employees got vaccinated or not 
  • Difficulty in facilitating employees with a test and vaccine booking system
  • No way to validate health certificates 
  • No way to detect the use of fake health certificates

As per the new executive order signed by Joe Biden, vaccination has become mandatory for Federal Contractors. Without a doubt, this order is a powerful solution for a COVID-free workplace. Safer Federal Workforce Task Force announced new guidelines to strengthen Biden’s order for ensuring safety at workplaces. All the employees of fed contractors and subcontractors have until December 8, 2021, to be fully vaccinated.

Biden’s COVID guidelines for American Businesses 

  • Employers must mandate the vaccine for their employees to enter the workspace.
  • Employers must ensure that unvaccinated employees are getting tested frequently to ensure only disease-free employees can access premises and resume working. 
  • Unvaccinated private employees will bear the expenses of frequent tests so that they can safely come back to the physical work location.
  • OSHA penalties for employers:
    • Covered employers who ignore the guidelines can be fined up to $14,000 per violation. 
    • The penalty for repeat offenders can be $140,000 per violation.

Biden’s COVID-19 action plan

In COVID-19 Action Plan, on Sep 9, 2021, President Biden publicized the path out of the pandemic. It depicts that the companies having more than 100 employees must conduct vaccination or weekly testing for infectious disease. He also said – “We have the TOOLS to fight against the virus.” This plan will save even more lives in the upcoming month while keeping schools open and protecting the economy from damages and recessions. 

In addition, Lab References Advisory Group – a certified minority SDVOB has ensured that these TOOLS are secure to screen, detect, track, and manage the infectious disease in the entire workforce, including contractors and temporary staff employees.
