OSHA Further Extends Anti-Retaliation Provisions

OSHA_logoOSHA has announced that it will again delay enforcement of the anti-retaliation provisions in its injury and illness tracking rule until December 1, 2016.  This extended deadline is in response to a request from a federal judge in the Northern District of Texas who is presiding over the legal challenge of the new rule.

Employers now have until December 1, 2016 to comply with OSHA’s anti-retaliation provisions, which require employers to inform employees of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation; to implement reasonable procedures for reporting injuries and illnesses that do not discourage employees from reporting work-related injuries or illnesses and prohibit employers from retaliating or discriminating against employees for reporting injuries and illnesses.
