In the main case, the majority of justices believed that the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration does not have the authority to impose an emergency regulation to implement a vaccine mandate.
The majority opinion says thatAdministrative agencies are creatures of statute.

Congress has given them the authority that they possess. 84 million Americans have been ordered by the Labor Department to either get a vaccine or get weekly medical testing. This is not an everyday exercise of federal power. It doesn't. The act gives the secretary the power to set safety standards at work.

The OSHA rule was supposed to go into effect this week, but was halted pending court action. The new rule required employees to either be tested for COVID-19 weekly or get fully vaccined.
The Supreme Court ruled correctly in our fight against Biden's vaccine mandate.

Before announcing the vaccine mandate for larger private employers, President Joe Biden said he didn't believe it would be constitutional without Congress.

The Occupational Safety and Health Act gave OSHA the authority to impose emergency standards for workplace safety without the need for regulatory approval, according to the Biden administration.
Private employers and the states argued that the vaccine mandate was federal overreach. They said it didn't comply with the federal statute that requires that any emergency temporary standard must show that employees face a "grave danger", that the rule is necessary to protect employees from such danger, and that the rule is feasible for employers to implement.
