“It’s going to take a lot of regulation and a lot of reporting, and it’s just not necessary,” said Durst.

Randy Peers, president and CEO of the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce, said the tenure would only exacerbate existing labor shortages and make it even more difficult for employers to recover from the pandemic.

“Small businesses in all fields can’t find workers and now with that requirement around the holidays we’re basically going to be forcing employers to let people go,” Peers said.

But at least one employer has taken the opposite view and encouraged Mr. Adams to continue with the mandate once he takes office.

Scott Rechler, managing director of RXR Realty, touted his own company’s successful vaccination mandate as proof that the technique works.

“The vaccine has proven to be our biggest line of defense that allows us to safely coexist and move forward without loss of life or livelihood,” he said. “We commissioned him for our teams at all our development sites in September for this reason. In the beginning, there were people who were against it, but they eventually got over it.

Whatever thoughts Mr. Adams may have on the matter, the timing of Mr. de Blasio’s announcement suggests that the decision will, ultimately, be in Mr. Adams’ hands.

“These are decisions, I think, made in the last few days of a town hall that really falls under the responsibility of our new mayor,” said Max Rose, the former congressman who has represented Staten Island and parts of it. from Brooklyn and announced a return candidacy on Monday. .
