HRW Client Alert: New OSHA Anti-retaliation Regulations

By Kelly Margeson   September 9, 2016

New OSHA anti-retaliation regulations impact post-accident drug testing policies and workplace safety incentive programs.

Employers should carefully review their policies and procedures concerning the reporting and investigation of work-related injuries and illnesses in light of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”)’s recent amendments to the regulations implementing the Occupational Safety and Health Act (“Act”).  The revised regulations call into question the lawfulness of two common employer policies:  post-accident drug testing policies and programs that reward employees who are not involved in workplace accidents.  For more information click here to download a copy of our full alert.
