OSHA Extends Anti-Retaliation Enforcement Deadline

Enforcement of the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration's (OSHA) anti-retaliation provisions in its injury and illness tracking rule has been delayed until Dec. 1.

Enforcement of the U.S. Occupational Safety & Health Administration's (OSHA) anti-retaliation provisions in its injury and illness tracking rule has been delayed until Dec. 1.

According to a notice issued by the agency, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas requested a delay to allow for more time to consider a legal motion challenging the new rule.

OSHA originally stated that enforcement of the anti-retaliation provisions will begin Aug. 10, but pushed that mandate to Nov. 10 to give regulators additional time to provide educational outreach to those affected by the changes.

Under the final rule, employers are required to inform workers of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation; implement procedures for reporting injuries and illnesses that are reasonable and do not deter workers from reporting; and incorporate the existing statutory prohibition on retaliating against workers for reporting injuries and illnesses.
