Navigating OSHA's New Rule on Injury and Illness Reporting & Anti-Retaliation

Event Host: 
Human Resource Association of Southern New Jersey
Location: 
The Greenview Inn at Eastlyn Golf Course, Vineland, NJ
Date/Time: 
Thursday, October 20, 2016 - 5:30pm to 8:30pm

Jammie Jackson, an associate in the Workers' Compensation Department, and Ashely Toth, an associate in the Professional Liability Department, are the featured speakers at the October meeting of the Human Resource Association of Southern New Jersey.

Despite considerable opposition from employers, the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has issued its new regulatory rule expanding employers’ requirements for reporting and submitting workplace injuries and illnesses and making such records publicly available. The rule also provides several anti-retaliation components bestowing additional protections on employees involved with reporting work-related injuries and illnesses, and it provides the agency with enhanced investigation and enforcement measures to be utilized in reporting work-related incidents. While the new rule faces proposed legal challenges, it is likely that some aspects of the rule will be upheld. As of this writing, OSHA has delayed enforcement of the rule until November 1, 2016.

In their presentation, Jammie and Ashley will discuss key concerns for employers, including new electronic reporting requirements and electronic submission of OSHA forms; public posting of data in the OSHA Employee Injury and Illness Database; new anti-retaliation provisions; and post-incident drug testing and safety programs.
