President Biden's Mandatory Vaccination Proclamation

SPECIAL REPORT BY TRIPP SCOTT'S CATALINA M. AVALOS

On September 9, 2021 President Biden issued COVID-19 vaccination mandates for federal employees and for private sector employers with 100 or more employees. Employees will have to get vaccinated or undergo Covid-19 testing at least once per week.  While we wait for specific guidance from the Department of Labor and other federal agencies that regulate the workplace, larger companies meeting the 100 or more employee threshold should begin planning for the implementation of the mandate and notifying their employees of the mandatory vaccination requirement so that employees can begin planning accordingly.  We anticipate that employers in the private sector will be given a reasonable amount of time to comply with the mandate.   For example, federal workers subject to this mandate are expected to receive a 75-day grace period to get vaccinated.   One thing seems to be clear though- the decision to require mandatory vaccinations in the workplace is no longer a matter of choice; at least for larger employers.

As Published in the Daily Business Review

An Op-Ed featuring analysis from Tripp Scott's Chuck Tatelbaum and Corey Cohen

While it has been long recognized that bankruptcy courts have the power to sanction attorneys and litigants pursuant to Rule 9011 of the Bankruptcy Rules of Procedure (a rule that is almost identical in substance to Rule 11 of the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure), a recent appellate ruling clarifies and expands the power and authority of bankruptcy courts to sanction attorneys and litigants based upon the inherent power of the bankruptcy court as well as the broad authority granted by Section 105(a) of the Bankruptcy Code.
