A conservative small-business advocacy group intends on suing the Biden administration over the President’s vaccine mandate for companies with a staff over 100.

President Joe Biden announced that the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) would be requiring businesses of a certain size to mandate vaccinations among their employees. 

The Job Creators Network announced in a press release their intention to sue the administration, alongside a few small businesses it currently represents.

Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the conservative group said in a statement that the vaccine mandate was clearly “unconstitutional and a dramatic overreach of federal authority.” 

“Small businesses are already contending with a historic labor shortage and this order will add expensive new barriers to finding and keeping employees, causing significant harm at the worst possible time.” Oritz added.

“The federal government doesn't have the power to require small businesses to carry out its de-facto national vaccine mandate.”

This lawsuit is one of many that have been filed following the President’s announcement concerning the vaccine mandate.
