The following quote may be attributed to Alliance Defending Freedom Senior Counsel Matt Bowman regarding a public comment ADF submitted Wednesday to the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration opposing its proposal to make the COVID-19 Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard permanent in any way:
“Mandating vaccines through an OSHA emergency rule is an alarming example of government overreach, and the Biden administration should immediately withdraw its unlawful proposal to make the mandate permanent. This proposed standard violates religious liberty, exceeds the agency’s authority under OSHA’s statutes, and runs afoul of other constitutional protections. Furthermore, the U.S. Supreme Court recently halted enforcement of the mandate, concluding that the federal administrative state has no authority to treat unvaccinated employees in all companies like workplace hazards and to compel those employers to carry out the government’s unlawful national vaccine mandate.”
ADF represents multiple clients in the consolidated cases challenging the mandate at the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 6th Circuit.
