Burr's Nafela Hojeij Featured in Business Insurance on OSHA Guidelines for Temp Workers

Firm News

In an article published in Business Insurance on September 5, Nafela Hojeij discusses the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration's latest guidelines for temporary workers. "The National Advisory Committee on Occupational Safety & Health, which had taken on temporary worker issues, has not met since 2016 following President Trump's executive branch restructuring efforts," Hojeij said. "But the agency has not slowed the enforcement of its temporary workers initiative."

Employers need to abide by OSHA's existing regulations to save time and money. Though OSHA may change its regulations, state and local regulators often adopt similar workplace safety rules. And employers can spend money as they adjust to each presidential administration's enforcement of OSHA regulations, so it's easier to adhere to the agency's policies regardless of who is in office. "There's some areas of the law that are by nature very confusing as we've had this transition between a very pro-employee administration and to a pro-employer administration," Hojeij explains. "It takes time for things to go from the top down to the line level."
