Pending 1.5 CLE + HRCI credit hours

The waning months of the Obama Administration have witnessed major regulatory changes across the employment landscape, often changing rules and practices that had been in place for decades. Drastic new changes have been enacted by the NLRB, the Department of Labor, and not to be outdone, OSHA.

Join us on Tuesday, October 11, at the Kegler Brown office for a breakfast briefing outlining the new OSHA regulatory changes. Director and co-chair of our labor and employment practice, Larry Feheley will discuss how the new regulations will have an impact on your business.

OSHA recently implemented new regulations that will begin affecting employers this November. These regulations follow on the heels of a number of other aggressive and activist changes by OSHA. Important new compliance issues include:

  • OSHA’s Final Rule on Recordkeeping is effective November 1, 2016, and employers need to adapt to significant new changes impacting safety programs, injury reporting, and drug testing;
  • Employers are likely to face increased safety and health inspections as a result of new injury notification requirements;
  • Employers alleged to be in violation of OSHA standards will face significantly increased penalties (up to 75% greater);
  • And much more.
