Untangling the Vaccine Mandate: Practical Steps for Contractors to Navigate Executive Order 14042

14 Oct 2021 01:00 p.m. - 02:30 p.m. EDT

On September 24, 2021, the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force issued guidance on President Biden’s Executive Order 14042 (the “Order”), seeking to impose upon a broad swath of federal contractors and their employees various mandatory vaccine and related COVID-19 safety requirements. Contractors are now scrambling to deal with the fallout from the guidance. With the FAR Council slated to issue the FAR Clause on October 8, 2021, contractors are waiting to see whether the FAR Council will provide further limits or clarity on coverage and the requirements of the Order.

Please join us as we discuss the latest developments and practical steps contractors can take for navigating the Order, including:

  • Coverage of contracts, employees, and locations;
  • Vaccine and other mandatory requirements;
  • Potential enforcement and penalties;
  • Interaction with upcoming OSHA rule and State Laws;
  • Possible legal challenges; and
  • Practical strategies for navigating coverage and compliance that include:
    • Determining contract coverage;
    • Addressing flow down requirements;
    • Approaching compliance with the vaccine mandate and other COVID-19 protocols;
    • Addressing religious and disability accommodations;
    • Considering price proposal implications; and
    • Seeking cost reimbursements and equitable adjustments

This webinar is suitable for lawyers, contracts and HR managers, business leaders, and ethics/risk officers.
