  • Agencies should delay toughest penalties for unvaccinated federal employees, Biden administration says - November 30, 2021
  • By Nicole Ogrysko, Federal News Network

    The Biden administration is encouraging agencies to delay the toughest punishments — which might include unpaid suspensions and possible firings — for federal employees who remain unvaccinated until after the holiday season.

    FMA National President Craig Carter issued a statement on the delay, and was quoted in the article.

    “This is already a stressful time, given the possibility of another government shutdown at the end of this week,” FMA National President Craig Carter said Monday. “We are thankful that federal employees will not have to worry about losing their jobs just as the holiday season arrives. FMA agrees with the rationale that it will allow more time for more federal employees to receive their vaccinations, or apply for valid medical or religious exemptions. This was the right decision to make at this time.”
