Vaccination Mandate Could Come With Crippling Fines for Businesses

Man Receives Awful NewsPresident Biden's recent COVID-19 vaccination mandate for businesses with 100 or more employees could come with enormous fines for offenders. Page 168 of the $3.5 trillion "reconciliation" bill highlights a tenfold increase in fines for employers that "willfully" or "repeatedly" violate the mandate.

If enacted into law, the increased fines could run as high as $70,000 for each serious infraction and $700,000 for each willful or repeated violation!

A recent article in Forbes highlights more of the vaccination mandate enforcement blueprint. We will continue to monitor and provide updates. If you have further concerns about these developments, please contact a member of our Labor & Employment Law team:
