Lawsuit filed in Eighth Circuit to challenge Biden Administration's OSHA vaccine mandate

(Regional) – The America First Policy Institute, in partnership with the Alliance for Free Citizens, has filed a Petition for Review and Motion for Stay of OSHA's Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS). The filing, which has been done with the Eighth Circuit Court of Appeals, was done on behalf of DTN Staffing and Miller Insulation, two small North Dakota-based businesses.

On November 5, 2021, OSHA introduced an ETS mandating that companies with 100 employees or more force their employees to either receive the COVID-19 vaccine or undergo weekly testing at the expense of the individual. If companies do not comply, they will face staggering fines of nearly $14,000 per violation of the ETS.

The filling asks the court to review the Biden Administration's vaccine mandate on private companies and American workers.
