Victory: Supreme Court Blocks Biden Vaccine Mandate for Employees
Austin, Texas – Today, in a 6 to 3 vote, the U.S. Supreme Court halted enforcement of President Biden’s unconstitutional vaccine mandate for employers with over 100 employees, saying that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is authorized to set workplace safety standards, not broad public health measures.
Jonathan Saenz, Attorney & President for Texas Values released the following statement: “As we predicted, the “no jab, no job” policy is unconstitutional and now illegal. Employers should immediately ignore the federal government on vaccine mandates. Let people work.”
Texas Values, along with leaders and representatives from 29 other states, led a coalition of state family policy council organizations from across the country in opposing the illegal Biden employee vaccine mandate by filing a legal amicus brief at the U.S. Supreme Court.
The case, brought by a union of states and business industry groups, and supported by Texas Values, challenges the OSHA nationwide vaccine-or-testing rule for U.S. businesses with 100 or more employees. In addition to Texas Values, family policy organizations (representing entities from 29 other states) signed on to the legal brief as amici curiae.
