The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has delayed enforcement of the anti-retaliation provisions in its new injury and illness tracking rule to conduct additional outreach and provide educational materials and guidance for employers.

Enforcement originally was scheduled to begin Aug. 10, 2016 but now will begin Nov. 1, 2016. Under the rule, employers must inform workers of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses without fear of retaliation; implement procedures for reporting injuries and illnesses that are reasonable and do not deter workers from reporting; and incorporate the existing statutory prohibition on retaliating against workers for reporting injuries and illnesses.
