Court Enjoins Vaccine Mandate for Federal Contractors
Attention federal contractors: a Georgia US district court judge has issued a nationwide injunction halting enforcement of Executive Order 14042, which requires that federal contractors and subcontractors with specific types of covered contracts ($250k or more) ensure that their covered employees are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 by January 18th, 2022.
The federal court order dated 12/7/21 states,
[T]he Court ORDERS that Defendants are ENJOINED, during the pendency of this action or until further order of this Court, from enforcing the vaccine mandate for federal contractors and subcontractors in all covered contracts in any state or territory of the United States of America.
There was an earlier injunction, which only applied in a few states. While this is nationwide, I expect DOJ to appeal. Stay tuned!
