On this episode, we are joined by attorneys Jacob Scott and Alexander Gorelik of Smith Currie & Hancock LLP, as we examine the administration’s order on vaccination requirements for federal contractors and the interim FAR Clause implementing that order. We discuss the updated deadlines for compliance, what contractors and employees of those contractors are included in this order, the exceptions and exclusions that pertain, and the need for compliance documentation. We also address the impact of the temporary injunction that was issued against enforcement of the contractor vaccination requirement in the states of Kentucky, Ohio, and Tennessee and how that may affect interstate contracts. To keep up to date on changes to this information, you can check the Safer Federal Workforce webpage, and don’t hesitate to reach out to a qualified attorney. Please Note: there continue to be fast-moving changes to the Vaccine Mandate and this podcast represents a snapshot in time.
