Temporary Worker or Your Employee? The Legal Implications and Impacts of OSHA and the NLRB – August 8, 2017


A Joint Woods Rogers and Healthcare Compliance Resources Learning Experience.

SpeakersJoshua R. Treece, Attorney, Woods Rogers PLC and Stephen Burt, President, HCR

Tuesday, August 8, 2017 from 9:00 AM to 12:00 Noon

This 3-hour seminar will focus on:

  • The legal responsibilities of both the staffing agency and the host employer in protecting the temporary employee
  • How to interpret the NLRB’s “joint employers” position and how it can impact your business
  • A review of the OSHA Guidance addressing the Temporary Worker Initiative and ways employers can minimize liability with appropriate contract language

Who is responsible for compliance with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) when temporary or agency employees are involved? If an injury occurs, whose OSHA 300 log is it recorded on? Is it the staffing company supplying the employees or the client host-employer for whom they are working?

What do you know about the staffing agency’s interviewing and screening procedures to ensure your business is protected upfront? Your facility may be ultimately responsible for the actions of a temporary employee. Failure to clarify these questions can result not only in hefty OSHA fines – which have now been increased nearly 80% – but also in a ruined reputation in the community.
