Understanding OSHA’s Multi-Employer Worksite Doctrine and the Unforeseeable Employee Misconduct Defense
November 12, 2019, @ 12pm Eastern Time
Join ASA on November 12th, 2019, for a live webinar with Philip J Siegel with Hendrick, Phillips, Salzman & Siegel. He will be discussing “Understanding OSHA’s Multi-Employer Worksite Doctrine and the Unforeseeable Employee Misconduct Defense,” an important topic to many of our ASA Members.
With construction booming, many subcontractors find themselves struggling to provide enough labor at each project. As a result, more and more subcontractors are engaging second-tier subcontractors to help with the current workload. Subcontracting work to a subcontractor, however, does not absolve the first-tier subcontractor of responsibility for safety under OSHA, even in a situation where all of the work is performed by a subcontractor. OSHA can issue a citation to the controlling employer, the correcting employer, and the creating employer, in addition to the exposing employer. We will discuss OSHA’s multi-employer worksite doctrine, and we will also be sure to discuss the duties required of each type of employer on a multi-employer worksite. We will also address the unforeseeable employee misconduct defense to an OSHA citation, for when the subcontractor is cited as the exposing employer.
This informative webinar is complimentary, and we invite you to come and join us!
