[The Epoch Times, November 18, 2021](Reported by Isabel Van Brugen/Gao Shan Suspend the implementation and implementation of the Biden government’s COVID-19 (Chinese Communist virus) vaccine mandatory order against private companies.

Shortly before the announcement by the Department of Labor, the U.S. Court of Appeals rejected the challenge raised by the Biden administration on November 12 and reiterated the suspension of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) order. Biden’s vaccine enforcement order requires companies with more than 100 employees to ensure that workers receive the COVID-19 (Chinese Communist virus) vaccine before January 4, 2022, or receive weekly virus tests and wear masks.

In a ruling issued by the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans, the enforcement of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s order was “too broad”. And made a ruling stating that it “does not take any measures to enforce or enforce this vaccine order until it obtains a further ruling from the court.”

Previously, the court temporarily suspended the government’s vaccine injunction in the November 6 lawsuit to wait for the outcome of the lawsuit.

The U.S. Department of Labor confirmed the court’s ruling in a statement: “The court ordered OSHA to not take any measures to implement or enforce the vaccine injunction until it obtains a further court ruling.” “Although the Occupational Safety and Health Administration is concerned I still have confidence in my right to protect workers in emergency situations, but the agency has suspended work related to the implementation and enforcement of the vaccine injunction and is waiting for the progress of the relevant litigation.”

Recently, at least 27 states in the United States, as well as many private employers, religious organizations, and other groups, have sued the Biden administration, accusing it of exceeding its authority over issuing vaccine injunctions.

On November 12, the Fifth Circuit reiterated that the Biden administration’s vaccination injunction “raised concerns about whether it is seriously unconstitutional” and that it “is likely to indeed exceed the authority of the federal government”.

Biden administration officials did not immediately respond to The Epoch Times’ request for comment.

At the same time, after the court’s initial ruling on November 6, White House officials continued to demand private employers to enforce vaccine injunctions.

The White House’s Chief Deputy Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre (Karine Jean-Pierre) responded on November 8 to a question about whether employers should postpone their employees’ vaccinations: “We believe that people should not wait. “

Jean-Pierre said: “What we want to say is: Don’t wait on the issue of taking action to ensure your workplace is safe. This is important and critical. Wait on the issue of getting more people vaccinated. Wait and see, it will lead to more epidemics and diseases.”

She said that employers “should not wait until” the legal issues are resolved before implementing Biden’s vaccine order requirements.

“They should continue to implement it to ensure that all their employees are vaccinated.”
