Oklahoma AG says businesses should ignore federal vaccine mandate

Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor says businesses should ignore President Biden’s vaccine mandate.

“There are currently no rules that require employers to mandate the COVID-19 vaccine for employees.   I urge Oklahoma employers to disregard the Biden Administration’s wishes to the contrary.  In the event federal emergency rules are issued that place such an unlawful demand upon employers, our office will be joined by other state Attorneys General across the country to quickly sue and seek an injunction against any implementation or enforcement,” said O’Connor.

O’Connor also said that religious, medical, and personal exemptions could be approved by employers.
