Webinar: ID# 1023321
Recorded On-Demand
About This Course:
Alert: You’ve got a slight reprieve now that OSHA has delayed enforcement for portions of the final Electronic Recordkeeping Rule to December 1, 2016 (originally November 1, 2016 was to be the effective date). The rule had originally gone into effect in August 2016, but OSHA delayed enforcement to provide more information and educational materials to employers.

December 1 is still right around the corner, though, and it’s essential for you to know what it covers and your compliance obligations under it.

This rule requires employers to electronically submit injury and illness records to OSHA on an annual basis. Depending on the number of employees at an establishment the employer may be required to submit all recordkeeping forms—300, 300A, and 301 for the calendar year, or just the 300A. OSHA’s intention is to make these recordkeeping forms publicly available and searchable on OSHA’s website.

In addition to the electronic submission, the final rule also includes an anti-retaliation provision that prohibits employers from taking adverse action such as; termination, reassignment or pay reduction against employees who report injuries or illnesses.

Join us when Tressi Cordaro, a partner at Jackson Lewis, PC, will discuss the scope and practical impact of OSHA’s final electronic recordkeeping rule and anti-retaliation provisions ahead of the December 1 effective date and provide real strategies for ensuring compliance.

  • What types of safety incentive programs are problematic under this final rule
  • What types of drug testing programs are problematic under this final rule
