Two retail advocacy groups have asked the Biden administration for 90 days before the implementation of a new mandate that requires workers at large companies to be vaccinated against Covid-19 or submit to weekly testing.
In a joint letter, the National Retail Federation and the Retail Industry Leaders Association requested the three-month timeline “to allow retailers and other employers to create the systems necessary” for compliance.
The letter also raised questions about potential difficulties that retailers could encounter. Those issues include how employers will track compliance, what remedial actions can be taken against those who refuse vaccinations and testing, and how the mandate applies to those who claim religious- or health-based exemptions.
