About This Course:
ALERT: The Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has reversed longstanding course in ruling that OSHA’s Multi-Employer Worksite Doctrine permits federal regulators to cite employers responsible for control, exposure, creation and correction of workplace safety hazards, not just the employer of record for a given set of employees. That means organizations in the “gray” area, that is, those that supply or benefit from having a temporary workforce will become more vulnerable to liability. But where do the other Circuits come down on this issue?

That’s an important question host employers and staffing agencies nationwide must consider so they understand their legal liability when supplying or benefiting from having temporary workers on the job. Consider too, that as a share of the overall workforce, temporary workers are on the rise, a trend that is likely to continue. This has attracted enforcement attention from OSHA, as well as plaintiff attorneys who see a route to avoiding workers’ compensation exclusive remedies in injury cases.

Because the modern workforce is so heterogeneous, your safety program must effectively deal with all workers—including these temporary and contract workers.

Join us when Michael Peelish, an experienced safety lawyer who has helped many companies develop and implement effective temporary and contract worker safety programs, will provide guidance and information on developing a program from scratch, as well as assistance in evaluating an existing program to help attendees ensure that their programs are compliant and fine-tuned to succeed.What You'll Learn:
