Deadline looms for federal contractors to protect $ 592 billion in revenue by proving their employees are vaccinated |
WILMINGTON, North Carolina, October 1, 2021 / PRNewswire / – As the deadline approaches for companies providing services to the federal government to confirm that all their employees and contractors are vaccinated against COVID-19, these employers are under urgent pressure to find a way to manage this federal requirement. The legislation is part of the Safer Federal Workforce Task Force guidelines released on September 24, and outlines a December 8 full vaccination deadline for anyone working on or in connection with a covered federal contract. This Safety Guide for Federal Contractors is enforced by the Federal Procurement Regulatory Council and supersedes any contrary state or local laws or ordinances. The guidelines affect millions of American workers who will have to roll up their sleeves in the near future to meet the early December deadline, especially for those receiving Moderna or Pfizer vaccines, both of which require two doses to achieve full immunization status. . For these employers, the stakes are considerably high: finding a way to securely review and verify their employees’ vaccines with a verifiable audit trail, or risk losing their valuable federal government contracts – valued at a total. of $ 592 billion.
The administrative burden employers face in reviewing and verifying multiple doses of vaccines and booster shots is enormous and involves navigating several national, federal and international privacy laws surrounding the protection of individuals’ personal and health data, including HIPAA. , ADA, FCRA, Title VII, CCPA and RGPD. To complicate this situation, there is also a serious lack of time. Federal contractors must create acceptable guidelines for the submission of vaccine documentation, train their administrators on how to review and verify these documents, create an audit trail, and navigate medical and religious waivers. Or, they can turn to a long-established U.S. company that provides overnight compliance.
