(COLUMBIA, S.C.) –  Today, the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals blocked OSHA from enforcing a vaccine mandate for private employers with 100 or more employees until the Court decides whether to grant a permanent injunction against the mandate.

Attorney General Alan Wilson said, “The Court called the constitutionality of the mandate dubious. We agree completely and agree with the Court’s order that OSHA not take one step further. This is a great victory for employers and the working men and women of South Carolina.”
