Breaking: OSHA Suspends Vaccine Mandate
First Liberty Institute represents religious organizations in challenges to Biden Administration’s proposed vaccine mandate on employers with more than 100 employees

Washington, DC—Today, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration suspended implementation and enforcement of the Biden administration’s vaccine mandate for private employers after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth District blocked the measure late last week.  First Liberty Institute represents three religious ministries, Daystar Television Network, the American Family Association, and Answers in Genesis, in legal challenges to the mandate.

“The OSHA rule is blatant government overreach, massively unconstitutional, and threatens the freedom of working Americans,” said Lea Patterson, Counsel for First Liberty Institute.  “As religious organizations, our clients cannot in good conscience force their own employees to violate their deeply held beliefs regarding vaccines.  We will fight to make sure this mandate is struck down permanently.”
