On October 19, 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) issued guidance on its Workplace Injury Reporting Rule released last May that seeks to explain §§ 1904.35(b)(1)(i) and 1904.35(b)(1)(iv). As Jackson Kelly reported previously, the Rule has drawn ample criticism due to its anti-retaliation provisions, leading to multiple postponements of deadlines to comply. OSHA’s interpretation letter seeks to clarify what policies may be found in violation of the new rule.
