Welcome To SUMMER!
It's Time To Prepare For Some NEW
Federal and Cal-OSHA Regulations
That You Weren't Expecting ...
Summer Audits Are Important - Here's Why
The US Department of Justice has announced that effective August 1, 2016, they are implementing "Increased Fines" for "paperwork" violations regarding I-9 Forms. This matters to every employer since the cost for errors is more than doubling!
The 2nd Summer Surprise Is From Cal/OSHA
At this time, Cal/OSHA is regularly fining employers for not completing all of the items on the OSHA Injury Log 300. For employers with more than 25 employees, these 2016 logs likely will be filed electronically in 2017 and available for public review.
Attached is a DOJ & Cal/OSHA Recap of the specifics on these new regulations. There is also detailed information about California's Paid Sick Leave - and new rules from the City of Los Angeles and San Diego, along with an up-to-date list of local government requirements regarding Minimum Wages.
That's right, the minimum fine for any error or incomplete forms is increasing - from $110/form to $216/form. Please note that last year every client audit - prepared by our Don Dressler Consulting team - contained errors or had incomplete forms. This came as a surprise to them and definitely affected their bottom line!
