OSHA Delays Enforcement of Anti-Retaliation Provisions - Again
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced today that it will delay enforcement of the anti-retaliation provisions of the revised recordkeeping regulation until December 1, 2016. This delay is at the request of the Texas Court considering the Complaint and request for injunction filed by several industry groups in Texas. This is the second time that OSHA has delayed implementation of the new regulation.
Employers should plan as if OSHA will begin to enforce the new regulation on December 1 and consider how to revise their post-accident and safety incentive policies.
