Biden’s Business Vaccine Mandate Raises Questions
The Consumer Brands Association appealed to the Biden administration on Monday to immediately explain how the private sector vaccine mandate should be implemented. The letter included more than 50 questions from member companies about testing, vaccination, and other requirements. The band members are PepsiCo, General Mills, Coca-Cola, The Honest Company.
According to the Consumer Brands Association CEO, federal agencies should immediately answer questions and work with the private sector.
Biden noted last week that the Department of Occupational Safety and Health ensures compliance with the rule that companies with 100 or more employees are required to undergo vaccination or weekly COVID-19 testing. This rule applies to nearly 80 million Americans. Companies that break the law will have to pay a fine of $ 14,000.
The Consumer Brand Association is concerned because businesses do not have a precise direction on how to behave.
Aim of the Processes
The critical questions for companies are how to submit the proper documentation to prove the authenticity of the vaccination or whether a business should be responsible for an individual’s fake records. To this end, the letter says the Consumer Brands Association and member companies are ready to contribute to the American vaccination process. Close cooperation between the private and public sectors will accelerate the process of achieving a common goal.
Biden’s private sector mandate has drawn mixed reviews from other business groups.
We wonder what the response will be to the letter from the Presidential Administration to the Association. However, the announcement made by the first person in the US has confused many companies. Additional clarifications are necessary to bring more clarity to the processes.
The fact is that the member brands of the Association are ready to provide timely vaccination of employees. A quick process will even contribute to the overall picture.
