Employees must be informed about the requirements of the anti-retaliation rule relating to reporting injuries and illnesses by that date.  OSHA’s interprets this rule broadly to prohibit mandatory post-accident drug testing, concluding that such tests discriminate against employees on the basis of injury and illness reporting.  OSHA further explains that incentive programs are retaliatory if they offer benefits to employees or workforces who do not report injuries and illnesses.  Finally, OSHA uses the rule-making to allow compliance officers to issue citations for retaliation, upending the current statutory employee retaliation enforcement framework under Section 11(c) of the Act. 

The regulations further require employers to post workplace recordable injury and illness information electronically.  OSHA will release this employer injury and illness information publicly on its website, believing that its disclosure will “shame” employers into improving workplace safety and health.  The electronic data submission requirement will also ease OSHA’s data analysis, presumably to ramp up citations against employers based on the frequency of certain types of injuries (such as OSHA’s renewed focus on “ergonomics” injuries) or injuries caused by exposures to certain chemicals or toxic materials.  The remaining provisions of the final rule, including the electronic reporting provisions, will take effect on January 1, 2017.

Drug Testing

Section 1904.35(b)(1)(iv) of the final rules prohibits an employer from discharging or discriminating against an employee for reporting a work-related injury or illness.  OSHA’s Preamble to the Final Rule interprets the regulation broadly to prohibit any “adverse action that could well dissuade a reasonable employee from reporting a work-related injury or illness.”  OSHA applies the prohibition to any “blanket post-injury drug testing policies deter proper reporting,” concluding that drug-testing alone constitutes an “adverse employment action.”  OSHA instructs employers to “limit post-incident testing to situations in which employee drug use is likely to have contributed to the incident, and for which the drug test can accurately identify impairment caused by drug use.”  OSHA explains with examples: it “would likely not be reasonable to drug test an employee who reports a bee sting, a repetitive strain injury, or an injury caused by a lack of machine guarding or a machine or tool malfunction.”

OSHA’s interpretation of its new rule calls into question the widespread use of mandatory post-accident drug testing programs.  While federal courts may not uphold OSHA’s reasoning that a drug-test, standing alone, is a form of an “adverse employment action,” employers should be mindful of their policies and should consider taking action to ensure compliance with the regulation.  Drug-testing policies should be revisited for compliance by August 10, 2016 since the rule requires that the employer have a compliant anti-retaliation policy by that date.

Incentive Programs

In its Preamble on the Final Rule, OSHA similarly condemns employer safety “incentive programs” as form of retaliation.  This position is consistent with OSHA’s past rulings and guidance on employer incentive programs, but goes further in widening its prohibition on incentive programs even when they are part of a broader compliance program.  The new rules explain that “it is a violation of paragraph (b)(1)(iv) for an employer to take adverse action against an employee for reporting a work-related injury or illness, whether or not such adverse action was part of an incentive program.”  OSHA’s interpretation prohibits all programs in which employees are denied a benefit on the basis of any injury or illness report.  For example, if an entire shift loses a safety bonus due to a single employee being injured.

However, an incentive program may make a reward contingent upon, for example, whether employees correctly follow legitimate safety rules, rather than whether they reported any injuries or illnesses.  OSHA further encourages incentive programs that promote worker participation in safety-related activities, such as identifying hazards or participating in investigations of injuries, incidents, or ‘‘near misses.’’  Accordingly, employers should consider OSHA’s new interpretation when reassessing their incentive programs to ensure they are offering a benefit or reward based on the reporting of injuries or illnesses.  These types of programs could be adjusted to provide benefits on the basis of compliance with safety rules, or for attending safety trainings or persevering on safety quizzes.

These rules will take effect on August 10, 2016 as part of the required anti-retaliation policy.

New Retaliation Rules

In the Preamble to the anti-retaliation portion of the Final Rule, OSHA takes the position that its compliance officers can issue citations to employers who discipline workers for reporting injuries and illnesses when it believes that no legitimate workplace safety rule has been violated.  Accordingly, OSHA intends to give its compliance officers, who have no formal training in employment discrimination law, the authority to issue citations based on perceived retaliation in the workplace.  OSHA’s interpretation overturns the Agency’s longstanding statutory framework for retaliation complaints under Section 11(c) of the Act, under which employees must report allegations of retaliation, which are then investigated by specialized investigators.  Unlike a Section 11(c) complaint, in which an employee must file a retaliation claim with OSHA within 30 days, a compliance officer has 6 months to issue OSHA citations from the last day that the alleged violation occurred.

Every time a client asks “what do I say” in response to employee inquiries about what the client’s company is doing to ensure fair pay, Justin Bieber’s song “What do you Mean” starts playing in my head as “What do I Say.” Luckily, while I am certainly not a Belieber, I find the song catchy rather than annoying, and appropriately thought-provoking.
