GE halts vaccine rule after Supreme Court rejects mandate

General Electric Co. is suspending implementation of the Biden administrationís vaccine-or-test mandate for large employers after the Supreme Court blocked the federal rule.

The maker of jet engines, wind turbines and medical scanners confirmed the decision Friday via email. GE is the first major company to announce a halt after the courtís decision Thursday to block the centerpiece of President Joe Bidenís push to boost COVID-19 vaccinations.

Vaccine rules have taken on greater significance as the surging omicron variant has roiled return-to-office plans, complicated school re-openings and caused scores of workers to call in sick. Without the federal mandate, which would have applied to employers with 100 or more workers, the choice would be left to individual companies.

A separate rule that would apply to federal contractors remains in limbo after it was blocked by a federal judge last month. GE, which has a number of government contracts, stopped rolling out a vaccine requirement under that measure following the December court decision.

The Boston-based industrial giantís shares were little changed at 2 p.m. in New York.

*the end*

1. I'm curious what's the vaccinated percentage in that company?

As patriotic American I would like to know? It's patriotic to be vaccinated when a deadly virus is killing your fellow Americans. unless you have a medical excuse.
