  • Starbucks Rescinds Employee Vaccinate or Test Policy in the Wake of the SCOTUS Decision


Hey Compliance Warriors!


Last week, the Supreme Court of the U.S. stayed OSHA’s Vax or Test ETS for employers with 100+ employees. Many employers have already put this policy in place and are staying the course even without a mandate from OSHA.


Has your workplace considered pulling back on your vax or test mandate after hearing about the stay of OSHA’s ETS last week?


Starbucks has announced they will be pulling back on this policy and no longer requiring employees to be vaccinated or test weekly. Here are some reports on the decision from various news sources.
