Lonnie Giamela Advises California Employers to Adhere to Cal-OSHA Regulations
In an article in WorkersCompensation.com, Lonnie Giamela was interviewed about the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision to block the Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Emergency Temporary Standard (ETS), a decision that left a lot of employers looking for guidance on how to move forward.
Lonnie says that California employers will still be responsible for adherence to state health standards.
“The United States Supreme Court’s ruling is a welcome relief to employers that would have otherwise been covered under the Federal OSHA vaccine mandate,” he said. “California employers, however, must not confuse this ruling with any type of relaxation on the stringent requirements under state Cal-OSHA ETS regarding required policies and training as well as isolation, quarantine and exclusion rules for those that test positive and close contacts.”
