Connections: Discussing President Biden's vaccine mandate

The Biden administration wants all companies with at least 100 employees to be given two options: employees must either be vaccinated or undergo weekly COVID testing. Advisor Andy Slavitt says this is a necessary step to control a still-raging pandemic. But would it hold up in court? Legal challenges were launched almost immediately.

Our guests look at what we know so far about this proposal, and how it fits within the context of the law:

  • Elizabeth Cordello, chair of the Labor and Employment Practice group at Pullano and Farrow
  • Ibrahim Tariq, attorney with the Labor and Employment Practice group at Harris Beach
