Employer Anti-Retaliatory Procedures Again Under Review by OSHA

via DATIA – “The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced on Oct. 18 that it will delay enforcement, for a second time, of the anti-retaliation provisions in its injury and illness tracking rule until Dec. 1, 2016. It was previously reported  that the first delay in enforcement may have been associated with ongoing litigation over the provisions in the Northern District of Texas, captioned TEXO ABC/AGC, Inc., et al. v. United States Sec’y of Lab., Civil Action No. 3:16-cv-01998-D”

Employers should review their reporting procedures, programs, and policies for elements that may result in retaliatory actions against an employee for reporting an injury or illness – see  US Department of Labor Memorandum October 19, 2016 for guidance – also see Lexology
