The National Retail Federation quickly responded to the Supreme Court's decision to reimpose a stay of the ETS, calling it a significant victory for employers.
"OSHA clearly exceeded its authority promulgating its original mandate under emergency powers without giving stakeholders the benefit of a rulemaking process.
The NRF urged "the Biden Administration to discard this unlawful mandate and instead work with employers, employees and public health experts on practical ways to increase vaccination rates and mitigate the spread of the virus in 2022.”
What happens next? The National Lumber and Building Material Dealers Association explained that OSHA is now blocked from enforcing all provisions of the ETS while it will be reconsidered by the Sixth Circuit court.
