Bloomberg Law reported that a federal appeals court dismissed complaints aimed at halting the Biden administration’s COVID-19 vaccination-or-test requirements for major corporations.

The lawsuits were dismissed after the Supreme Court halted the implementation of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulation.

According to AFP, following months of public calls to Americans to get vaccinated against COVID-19, President Joe Biden declared in September that immunizations would be obligatory for organizations with 100 or more employees.

The requirement, however, would represent a “significant invasion into the lives, and health, of a huge number of employees,” according to the high court’s six conservative justices.

“While Congress has unmistakably granted OSHA the authority to regulate occupational hazards, it has not given the agency the authority to regulate public health more broadly,” they said.

“Requiring vaccination of 84 million Americans solely because they work for firms with more than 100 workers fits squarely in the latter category,” they noted.

According to Bloomberg Law, the legislation would have forced injections or weekly testing for people working in major corporations. Following the Supreme Court’s judgment, OSHA withdrew the legislation in January.

A coalition of Republican attorneys general, as well as corporations and religious organizations, filed the appeals court case.
