The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) withdrew its Vaccination and Testing Emergency Temporary Standard for employers with over 100 employees after the Supreme Court of the United States recently halted its enforcement.  OSHA, however, is not withdrawing the mandate as a proposed permanent rule, which may be adopted in coming months.

First Liberty Institute represents three prominent national religious ministries – Daystar Television Network, the American Family Association, and Answers in Genesis – in consolidated cases challenging the mandate.


“The Supreme Court made it clear that the President Biden administration’s attempt to federalize the nation’s workforce is blatantly unconstitutional,” said Kelly Shackelford, President, CEO, and Chief Counsel for First Liberty Institute.  “OSHA had no choice but to withdraw its unlawful ETS, but it needs to completely put an end to this dangerous government overreach.  We will continue to fight on behalf of our clients and the American people to protect them from being forced to violate their faith.”

Daystar Television Network is an international, faith-based network “dedicated to spreading the Gospel 24 hours a day, seven days a week”; America Family Association is one of the largest pro-family organizations in the country; Answers in Genesis is a world-class, Christ-centered, family attraction, with physical properties—one a full-scale replica of Noah’s Ark—located in northern Kentucky.  Each organization has over 100 employees, making them subject to the vaccine mandate.
