What New OSHA ‘Walkaround’ Rule Means for Employers

April 10, 2024

By: Rebecca J. LaPoint

In this week’s Business in 2024 webinar, Bond labor and employment attorney Rebecca J. LaPoint talked about the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) new “walkaround” rule, which governs who can accompany compliance safety and health officers as they conduct workplace inspections. Under the amended rule, which takes effect May 31, 2024, employees could select a non-employee, third-party representative to observe a walkaround inspection. One concern for employers is the possibility the new rule could grant union access to non-union workplaces.

The full webinar covered the following topics:

  • Trending Litigation Regarding Government Tax Foreclosures
  • New OSHA Walkaround Rule
  • Recent Transgender Discrimination Cases
  • ERISA 101: Welfare Plans Subject to ERISA
