OSHA Delaying Enforcement of Anti-Retaliation Provisions

OSHA Delaying Enforcement of Anti-Retaliation Provisions

The provisions are part of the new injury and illness tracking rule

OSHA has announced it 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. The rule was originally scheduled to be enforced starting Aug 10., 2016, but will now start Nov. 1, 2016.

The rule requires employers to inform workers of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation, as well as implement procedures for reporting injuries and illnesses that are reasonable. Employers must also incorporate the existing statutory prohibition on retaliating against workers for reporting injuries and illnesses.
