What’s most interesting about Biden’s Executive Order (EO) #14042 “Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors,” (Sept. 9, 2021) which has been interpreted by the mainstream media as “vaccine requirements for corporations with 100 employees or more” is that such an interpretation is NOT at all what the Executive Order (EO) says.
If you look up the Executive Order (EO) in the Federal Register you can read the full text.
This Executive Order (EO( has nothing whatsoever to do with the private sector UNLESS the private sector engages in contracts with the federal government. Employers and employees need to understand this important distinction and so-called requirement before implementing company policies that may very well damage both the company and their employees.
In plain language the Executive Order (EO) implies in clear legal language that only the largest corporations above 100 employees doing business with the federal government under federal contracts would be required to mandate these COVID-19 vaccines for their employees.
Even after Biden mandate each employee has the unalienable right to be provided with “Informed Consent” for the medical examination and vaccination. No employee is required to receive a vaccine unless the company under the supervision of a physician provides “Informed Consent” to the employee. Even this requirement may be subject to a legal challenge very soon as 29 states are opposed to these vaccine mandates.
Text of Executive Order (EO)
Here’s the first few paragraphs of the Executive Order (EO) #14042 “Ensuring Adequate COVID Safety Protocols for Federal Contractors,” (Sept. 9, 2021):
By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act, 40 U.S.C. 101 et seq., and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, and in order to promote economy and efficiency in procurement by contracting with sources that provide adequate COVID-19 safeguards for their workforce, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Policy. This order promotes economy and efficiency in Federal procurement by ensuring that the parties that contract with the Federal Government provide adequate COVID-19 safeguards to their workers performing on or in connection with a Federal Government contract or contract-like instrument as described in section 5(a) of this order. These safeguards will decrease the spread of COVID-19, which will decrease worker absence, reduce labor costs, and improve the efficiency of contractors and subcontractors at sites where they are performing work for the Federal Government. Accordingly, ensuring that Federal contractors and subcontractors are adequately protected from COVID-19 will bolster economy and efficiency in Federal procurement.
“Informed consent to medical treatment is fundamental in both ethics and law. Patients or Employees have the right to receive information and ask questions about recommended treatments so that they can make well-considered decisions about care. Successful communication in the patient/employee-employer/physician relationship fosters trust and supports shared decision making. The process of informed consent occurs when communication between a patient/employee and employer/physician results in the patient’s/employee’s authorization or agreement to undergo a specific medical intervention.” ~ American Medical Association (AMA), Code of Medical Ethics 2.1

Which still should not be legal.
