AGC Continues to Litigate COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates
AGC of America is pursuing two Construction Advocacy Fund-backed lawsuits regarding COVID-19 vaccination mandates impacting the construction industry.
AGC of America filed the first lawsuit on November 15, 2021, challenging OSHA’s Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS) on COVID-19 in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit. One month later, the association filed a second lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas against the mandate that federal contractors and subcontractors require many and perhaps all of their employees to be fully vaccinated for COVID-19. The following is an update on these two cases and related litigation.
