WASHINGTON (Reuters) -The Biden administration's COVID-19 vaccination deadline will not require immediate action on the part of employers against unvaccinated employees when it comes into force on Dec. 8, the White House coronavirus response coordinator said on Wednesday.
Some lawyers previously interpreted President Joe Biden's Sept. 9 executive order and subsequent White House guidance requiring all covered federal contractor employees to be vaccinated by Dec. 8 unless they got a religious or medical exemption.
The White House comments suggest federal contractors employing millions of U.S. workers have significant flexibility in enforcing COVID-19 rules and will not be required to immediate lay-off workers, but will have time for education, counseling and other measures before potentially ending employment.

Maybe take the opportunity to school the clueless corporate types doing Fedzilla's dirty work.
How does a worker that gets the Comirnaty (not currently available) or unapproved Moderna or J&J shot statisfy this EO mandate? Doesn't make any sense.
If these so-called vaccines are so safe then why doesn't big Pharma wave their legal liability protections and put their money where their mouths are?
Thanks, I know, I messed up.
“If these so-called vaccines are so safe then why doesn’t big Pharma wave their legal liability protections and put their money where their mouths are?”
Shirley, you jest.

There was no “lay-off” for workers. A lay-off implies the worker is eligible for un-employment benefits. Workers were to be fired.
Exactly right. The Left and the illegitimate ‘Biden’ regime are weak on this and they know it. Approximately 18 states attorneys general are ready to attack this as soon as it comes out. Also, there’s the issue you mentioned, which is none of the so-called vaccines are approved, they are all experimental. I can tell you, that at the company I work at in a Southern state, there is a significant fraction of us who will not take their witches brew under any circumstances. My company has already signaled that they will be accepting religious and medical exemptions. We can beat this.
Who would put a header up like that?
I thought Freepers were smarter than that.
Contractors (oops, charities) that help flood our borders with crime and sickness must be relieved.
Of course the EO is a patently illegal communist-totalitarian-dictator-type decree having no standing whatsoever in the America. BidenHarris Marxist Junta behaves like some science-fiction type imperial demonic nightmare.
I made a mistake and asked the admin moderator to fix it if they could. Take a look at my first post.
As a solid representative of the less-than-smart Freepers, I am offended.
Shove your “mandate”, democrats.
A dull realization must have set in with the Administration that pushing the vaxx mandates and firing workers might just be the final nail in the coffin that drives the economy into recession. It’s too late anyway. it’s going there and the equally clueless Fed has no ammo in the form of lowering interest rates to fight it.
Crippling domestic energy production. Enforcing draconian vaxx mandates in a tight economy. Pushing stimmies which disincentivized people from working and drove up demand and inflation. Keeping interest rates too low which resulted in hyper-inflationary demand on housing.
The Fed has successfully done everything wrong.
These unelected evil-doers are just making this crap up on the fly.
And just why is the government meddling in people’s medical decisions made, probably, with their doctors?
He’s flinching. It may just be a little twitch right now, but it means he doesn’t have the nerve to play this game of chicken to win. He’ll swerve if we stay the course.
Wouldn't be the first time.
