This course is for employers that are unsure of significant employee rights under OSHA regulation 29 CFR 1910.1020. Employees have the right to access medical records relating to their employment. Failure to comply with this OSHA regulation may result in fines if an employee files a complaint for non-compliance. These same regulations impose significant employer obligations to retain these records for periods of time well past the end of the employment relationship and to make them available to former employees. In addition, such records may be accessed by the employee’s legal representative, including union representatives, under certain conditions.
