OSHA Places Pause on Record-keeping Requirements on Worker Side Effects From the COVID-19 Vaccinations Until May of 2022; Will Reevaluate at That Time
Many have argued that employers and businesses asking about your vaccine status may go against HIPAA rules, but it looks like that might not be the case. As far as we can tell, these laws have recently been reworded to ensure they only apply to Healthcare purposes such as treatments and billing for those treatments.
Some lawyers do say, however, that this could be interpreted differently by some judges.
That being said, what IS something that we know is normally an issue is OSHA and the rules they set for employers and how they handle record-keeping of their employees’ healthcare requirements.
Typically, all worker side effects from medicines, vaccinations or other work-required medical procedures are legally required to be kept in a record. OSHA seems to be ignoring their own rules so that no one is discouraged from getting the vaccine.

If you decided to ignore an OSHA rule for a reason you thought to be good, you wouldn’t get a pass.
This is also the reason why employers cannot be held liable for your vaccine side effects. You can’t sue the vaccine manufacturers OR your employer if they force you to get the vaccine.
This is the problem with government being their own judge, jury and executioner. “Rules for thee, but not for me.” as the saying goes except add to that the ability for them to change their own rules when it suits their own agenda.
