Boeing suspends vaccine requirement for employees

The Boeing Co. has suspended its own mandate for all employees to receive COVID-19 vaccines, citing a federal court’s decision to stop enforcement of President Joe Biden’s mandate requiring federal contractors to have a fully vaccinated workforce.

“After careful review, Boeing has suspended its vaccination requirement in line with a federal court’s decision prohibiting enforcement of the federal contractor executive order and a number of state laws,” the company said in a statement to FOX Business. “As we have throughout the pandemic, we will continue to monitor and follow federal, state and local requirements.”

“We are committed to maintaining a safe working environment for our employees, and advancing the health and safety of our global workforce,” the Boeing statement also reads. “As such, we continue to encourage our employees to get vaccinated and get a booster if they have not done so.” – READ MORE
