President Biden's Mandatory Vaccination Proclamation

SPECIAL REPORT BY TRIPP SCOTT'S CATALINA M. AVALOS

On September 9, 2021 President Biden issued COVID-19 vaccination mandates for federal employees and for private sector employers with 100 or more employees. Employees will have to get vaccinated or undergo Covid-19 testing at least once per week.  While we wait for specific guidance from the Department of Labor and other federal agencies that regulate the workplace, larger companies meeting the 100 or more employee threshold should begin planning for the implementation of the mandate and notifying their employees of the mandatory vaccination requirement so that employees can begin planning accordingly.  We anticipate that employers in the private sector will be given a reasonable amount of time to comply with the mandate.   For example, federal workers subject to this mandate are expected to receive a 75-day grace period to get vaccinated.   One thing seems to be clear though- the decision to require mandatory vaccinations in the workplace is no longer a matter of choice; at least for larger employers.

Competition for Legal Talent Drives Nail into Coffin of Five-Day, In-Office Work Week

Tripp Scott director and chief operating officer Paul Lopez initially asked his attorneys and staff to return to the office full time in July. Then, the delta variant hit, and the 48-lawyer law firm readopted its hybrid working model.

Nowadays, as Lopez plans for the future of Tripp Scott’s in-office working policies, he weighs aggressive competition from rival firms in his decision of whether to eventually ask everyone to return for a five-day, in-office work week.

“We have been successful in retaining employees and paralegals and associates, even though we know recruiters out there are trying to recruit them, because they know they have flexibility,” Lopez said in an interview. “I think that if we went back to five days (in-office) per week, that could have consequences for us because of how actively our competitors are trying to solicit employees with promises that they could work remotely. We’re trying to listen to the marketplace.”
