By December 8, 2021, all federal government contractors must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. According to the guidance, contractors are required to obtain documentation on every employee’s vaccination status. Meanwhile, private sector employers with 100 or more employees will more than likely be required to uphold the same standard.
Even prior to recent mandates, essential businesses were requiring workers and subcontractors to be vaccinated. For example, hospitals required general contractors to ensure workers and subcontractors were vaccinated before the start of any construction projects. From an administrative point of view, this is challenging.
