    Additional Information Released on
    Attesting to Vaccination Status

    The Safer Federal Workforce Task Force today released additional guidance and a form for federal agencies to use when requesting information on an employee’s vaccination status. 

    There is no implementation date for the start of this process. Federal agencies will use this form and the new information as guidance in creating their own programs. NTEU will be in discussions about the implementation of this program with all the federal agencies where we represent employees as agencies craft their programs and we will engage in bargaining to the fullest extent allowed by law.

    When implemented, the form will require federal employees to attest to their vaccination status and includes four options: fully vaccinated, partially vaccinated, not vaccinated, decline to respond. There is no requirement for employees to share medical information or provide proof of their vaccination status. 

    Employees who are in the midst of getting vaccinated, not vaccinated or choose to not provide that information will have to be tested. Testing programs will be created and implemented by federal agencies, which will also pay for any costs. How testing is handled is also a topic on the table for NTEU to discuss with agencies. 

    The form does note penalties for attesting to false information that could include administrative action up to and including removal from federal service. Employees are able to submit new forms if their vaccination status changes. 

    There will be much more information to come on the vaccine and testing policy and NTEU will continue to share it as soon as we receive it.
