COVID-19 Vaccine Mandates Gain Steam Across Corporate America

According to CNBC, over a dozen U.S. corporations have recently instituted COVID-19 vaccine mandates amid the surge of the Delta variant. Some of those corporations include United Airlines, Walmart. Tyson Foods and Google. The mandates vary between companies, with some requiring all staff to be vaccinated, while others are only making it necessary for certain offices or groups of employees.

According to Dorit Reiss, a professor at UC Hastings College of Law, these companies are taking action in a way the federal government can’t.

“[The federal government] probably doesn’t have the power to say everybody in the U.S. has to get vaccinated or pay a fine”, Dorit Reiss said via CNBC.

Several companies have faced pushback from unions about the vaccine. United Food and Commercial Workers, which represents over 20,000 Tyson employees, is concerned about mandating vaccines that aren’t fully approved by the FDA. Many businesses are still choosing to only encourage vaccinations rather than mandate them.

“We see that employers are as concerned with what they perceive as a skill shortage, a labor shortage, as anything in deciding whether to mandate the vaccinations”, Thomas Lenz, a professor at the University of Southern California Gould School of Law said via CNBC.

“And for that reason, employers don’t want to scare people away, as they feel they might be able to accommodate and keep the workforce in some other way”.
