Summary


Watch ADF's recap 
of the SCOTUS decision

This is a consolidation of multiple cases, including:  The Daily Wire v. Occupational Safety and Health AdministrationThe Southern Baptist Theological Seminary v. Occupational Safety and Health AdministrationState of Missouri v. Biden, and State of Florida v. Occupational Safety and Health Administration

The Biden administration issued a mandate via the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) that requires all private employers of 100 or more employees to force unvaccinated employees to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, be subject to weekly testing and masking requirements, or face penalties such as fines or losing their job. ADF is representing multiple clients challenging the mandate. All cases challenging this mandate were consolidated in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.

On December 17, the 6th Circuit lifted the stay issued by the 5th Circuit which had effectively halted implementation of the OSHA vaccine mandate. ADF and others then asked the Supreme Court to intervene, and on January 13, it issued a per curiam opinion halting the implementation of the federal government’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for private employers with 100 or more employees. The case now returns to the 6th Circuit where it will proceed and be decided on the merits.
