This summer, the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) issued a Final Rule that requires, among other things, certain employers to inform employees of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses free from discrimination or retaliation. Employers under federal OSHA jurisdiction can meet this notice requirement by posting the current federal OSHA posting.
Although North Carolina is not under federal OSHA jurisdiction, North Carolina law provides for the automatic adoption of federal OSHA standards, including the anti-retaliation notice requirement. North Carolina employers will meet the notice requirement by posting the state’s updated OSH Notice to Employees, which has been updated to inform employees of their right to report work-related injuries and illnesses free from discrimination or retaliation.
Compliance Poster Company has revised the North Carolina All-On-One™ Labor Law Poster to include the effective OSH Notice to Employees. Employers that already have a North Carolina All-On-One Poster can update with the NC OSH Notice to Employees Peel ‘N Post™.
