OSHA (Again) Delays Enforcement of New Employer Retaliation Provisions
The OSHA anti-retaliation measures, which in theory are designed to protect employees from being fired or punished for reporting unsafe working conditions, now face challenges from industry groups that feel OSHA failed to consider available evidence and wrongly judged some legitimate safety programs as forms of “retaliation” when creating the standards.
Groups who brought the lawsuit, filed in the US District Court of Texas, include the National Association of Manufacturers; Associated Builders and Contractors, Inc.; American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers; and others.

Electronic OSHA Injury and Illness ReportingThe Rule, which also requires many employers to electronically report injury and illness data recorded on OSHA Forms 300, 300A, and 301, was initially set to take effect on August 10, 2016. OSHA later delayed enforcement of the retaliation provisions until November and has now extended the delay until December 1.
