Rutledge Wins At Supreme Court: Victory Over OSHA Vaccine Mandate

Says, ‘I will always defend Americans’ freedom against the overreach of a greedy government’

LITTLE ROCK – Arkansas Attorney General Leslie Rutledge issued a statement following the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision to stay the vaccine mandate issued by The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) which required businesses with over 100 employees to mandate vaccines for all employees. This mandate was scheduled to go into effect, January 10, 2022.

“Our win at the U.S. Supreme Court protects employees from being forced to get a shot or lose their job and it allows businesses to keep hardworking employees,” said Attorney General Rutledge. “Today, we stopped President Biden’s overreach into the personal health freedoms of the American worker. I will always defend Americans’ freedom against the overreach of a greedy government.”

The U.S. Supreme Court also issued a decision permitting a separate vaccination rule by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to take effect. Both decisions followed arguments before the Supreme Court last week.
