Roughly three-fourths of U.S. employers recently surveyed have no plans to make COVID-19 vaccination a condition of work if courts permanently strike down the Biden administration’s mandate for large employers.

According to the survey of 1,000 randomly selected members of the Society for Human Resources Management, 75% said they’re not likely to implement either of the mandate’s central directives—full vaccination or weekly testing—should a permanent court ruling make the mandate illegal.

“The majority of employers and HR professionals that we chatted with are really in wait-and-see-mode,” Annemarie Schaefer, SHRM’s head of research, told Yahoo Finance. “So they don’t even know what to expect.”

“It seems like there’s been a lot of confusion, and [employers] are just waiting to be told what it is that they need to comply with,” Schaefer said.

In November, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals stopped enforcement of the rule by issuing a nationwide stay of the emergency temporary standard. The case was transferred to the Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, which kept the stay in effect.
