Our associate, Steve Shardonofsky, looks at a pending Supreme Court case in his recent blog that concerns the use of personal protective clothing and equipment (PPE) required by OSHA regulations. Steve concludes that “because it is not always clear what personal protective clothing or equipment is required by OSHA regulations, employers may want to consider any Fair Labor Standards Act ramifications before accepting an OSHA citation regarding safety gear.”

Readers with questions on these complicated rules and their implementation or this case are encouraged to reach out to us in the ES&TT Group, or to Steve Shardonofsky directly.
