Everything You Need to Know About OSHA's Covid-19 Emergency Temporary Standard

The highly anticipated Emergency Temporary Standard to protect workers from Covid-19 has been published. In this episode, Editor Sydny Shepard interviews Ashley Brightwell, partner in Alston & Bird’s Labor & Employment Group, about what employers should know about the new ETS.

The new Emergency Temporary Standard to protect workers from Covid-19 is here! Just 24 hours after the ETS dropped, I was very lucky to get into contact with someone who could help to walk me through the newest information from the Occupational Safety & Health Administration. I was so excited to talk with Ashley Brightwell, partner in Alston & Bird’s Labor & Employment Group, all about who this ETS impacts, what policies must now be implemented and what to do if an employee does not choose to, or cannot, be vaccinated.

If you or your company is impacted by this new Covid-19 ETS, this is a must listen. Download or stream this episode today at Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Stitcher, Spotify and more
