A US federal court has upheld the suspension of an order issued by the administration of President Joe Biden that forces major companies to vaccinate their employees against the Corona virus.
A jury of three judges in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans confirmed its ruling last week that blocked the administration’s order.
On Friday, the court stressed that the matter “flagrantly exceeds” the powers of the US administration.
If the ruling is upheld, it would represent a major setback for one of President Biden’s broader and more influential efforts to ensure that a large segment of American workers are vaccinated ahead of winter, when a new wave of Covid is expected to appear.
Biden has set a January 4 deadline for these companies to ensure their employees are fully vaccinated, a decision the administration said would affect more than two-thirds of the nation’s workforce, and which the court ruling criticized as “astonishingly exaggerated.”
Judge Kurt Englehart said the order threatens to drastically limit the freedom of individuals hesitant to choose between a job and a vaccine.
He continued, “From economic uncertainty to conflicts in the workplace, the mere specter of the matter has contributed to economic turmoil that has not been talked about in recent months.”
About 68 percent of the US population and 81 percent of adults had received at least one dose of anti-Corona vaccines as of mid-November.
