OSHA Delays New Anti-Retaliation Regs
OSHA is delaying enforcement of the anti-retaliation provisions in its new injury and illness tracking rule to conduct additional outreach and provide educational materials and guidance for employers.
Originally scheduled to begin Aug. 10, 2016, enforcement will now begin Nov. 1, 2016.
Under the rule, employers are required to inform workers of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation.
Employers must also implement procedures for reporting injuries and illnesses that are reasonable and do not deter workers from reporting, and they are prohibited from retaliating against workers for reporting injuries and illnesses.
