OSHA: Employee Discipline, Drug Testing, and Incentive Programs

By | Safety Services

On May 12, 2016, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a final rule, including anti-retaliation provisions, requiring certain employers to electronically submit data from their work-related injury records to OSHA. On Oct. 19, 2016, OSHA published an interpretation of how the anti-retaliation provisions affect employee discipline, drug and alcohol testing, and safety incentive programs.

The Anti-Retaliation Provisions

According to OSHA, the final rule clarifies existing law regarding employee anti-retaliation protections. Specifically, OSHA’s anti-retaliation provisions:

  • Require employers to inform employees that they have a right to report work-related injuries and illnesses free from retaliation;
  • Direct employers to adopt reasonable procedures (“not unduly burdensome” and does not “deter or discourage”) that employees can use to report work-related injuries and illnesses; and
  • Prohibit employers from retaliating against employees solely because they report work-related injuries or illnesses.

Posting Requirement

OSHA reminds employers of their obligation to post a copy of OSHA’s Form 300A, which summarizes job-related injuries and illnesses logged during 2017. Each year, between February 1 and April 30, the summary must be displayed in a common area where notices to employees are usually posted. Businesses with 10 or fewer employees and those in certain low-hazard industries are exempt from OSHA recordkeeping and posting requirements. Visit OSHA’s Recordkeeping Rule webpage for more information on recordkeeping requirements. Read More
