Following a federal lawsuit from the Associated Builders and Contractors, the National Association of Manufacturers (NAM), and other groups, regulators have delayed enforcement of anti-retaliation provisions. OSHA had originally set the enforcement to begin on August 10, but it is now pushed back to Nov 1, 2016.
Durability and Design reports:
