White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Thursday that the Department of Labor may compel large employers to enforce COVID-19 vaccine mandates on their employees.

During a press briefing, a reporter asked how “bold” the president is willing to be “as far as the private sector is concerned in the vaccine mandate area.”

“Even if they don’t have federal contracts can the Department of Labor or anybody else compel major employers, large employers to enforce vaccine mandates on their employees?” the reporter inquired.

“Yes, stay tuned,” Psaki responded.
