There were reports over the weekend that Newsmax was Enforce a vaccine mandate on its employees.
Popular NewsmaxTV host Steve Cortes announced this on Friday he would not comply with any vaccine mandate.
Newsmax came out on Sunday with a statement that strongly denies the earlier reports.
President Joe Biden’s new OSHA rule requiring businesses to have their employees vaccinated against COVID is a dangerous breach of federal power and opposed by Newsmax.
The new OSHA rule will take effect on January 4, 2022. This will require businesses of 100 or more to have all employees vaccinated in full or undergo weekly tests.
Newsmax has no vaccine mandate and does not require it for employment.
We have informed our staff about the upcoming federal rule.
At the same time, our staff has informed us that we will create an easy opt-out for any employee who does not want to be vaccinated.
Under the rule, any employee who has not been vaccinated will be tested weekly for COVID.
Newsmax goes beyond the OSHA rule to provide free weekly tests on its company premises.
