More good news from the Trump administration as the Occupational Safety & Health Administration (OSHA) has officially rescinded another Obama-era pro-union rule. The so-called “walk-around rule”, implemented back in 2013, effectively changed the OSHA allowing a third-party to “walk-around” with the inspector so long as he/she made a “positive contribution”! Previously, the standard required that the third party be “reasonably necessary” for the conduct of the inspection. Under the Obama rule, union officials often accompanied OSHA inspectors – even when the employer was a non-union company – and encouraged employees to unionize in order to maximize their benefits and protections. NFIB, the National Federation of Independent Business, filed suit against the rule and overcame a standing challenge by OSHA before the US District Court in Dallas. While that case is still pending, OSHA issued its rescission.
