On Monday, President Joe Biden’s administration was asked to respond to a flurry of new challenges to the private employer COVID-19 vaccination requirement by the United States Supreme Court.

Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh, a Trump nominee, directed administration officials to respond by 4 p.m. on Dec. 30 to applications from church groups, businesses, and attorneys general representing more than half the nation.

That leaves just a few days before the mandate’s deadline.

“This lawsuit has now reached its proper destination: the Supreme Court. OSHA has threatened to begin enforcing its regulations against employers like our clients on January 10, and we’re grateful the court has ordered a briefing schedule that will allow us to resolve our petition before that deadline,” Daniel Suhr, managing attorney at the Liberty Justice Center said.

“We appreciate Justice Kavanaugh’s prompt response and are hopeful that the court will move swiftly to guarantee legal certainty before the deadline,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorney John Bursch said.

Kavanaugh is addressing the issue because the appeals court that made the decision that sparked the challenges is within his authority.

The requirement in question was issued by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration of the Department of Labor (OSHA). If approved for implementation next month, it would require all businesses with 100 or more workers to get weekly verification of a negative COVID-19 test or proof of immunization from each employee. Businesses who fail to comply risk rising penalties.

In November, the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued a preliminary injunction against the requirement, calling its legality into doubt. However, the case was transferred to the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit by lottery, which lifted the stay on Friday.

OSHA expressed “gratification” with the verdict and said that it will begin enforcing the regulation on Jan. 10, 2022. However, the official deadline is January 4.

The Supreme Court, which promptly heard challenges from the Word of God Fellowship, The Heritage Foundation, Ohio’s attorney general, BST Holdings, and The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, might stop the order once again.

Parties stated in their submissions that without a fresh stay, they would suffer irreparable damageS

Institutions fear losing employees who refuse to get a vaccination and also refuse to undergo routine testing, sometimes at their own expense.

“Public schools in South Dakota and Florida are not subject to the requirement, which may entice instructors away from Christian private schools,” Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys stated in one of the papers.

The administration’s critics argue that it is breaking the state jurisdiction provided in the United States Constitution and exceeding the authority Congress granted OSHA to regulate enterprises.

According to OSHA, the regulation “will safeguard worker health by preventing the spread of the unprecedented infection in the workplace.”

The agency was referring to the COVID-19-causing CCP (Chinese Communist Party) virus.
