OSHA Fines Could Soar 82% Under 2016 Federal Budget

November 18, 2015

Under a provision in the 2016 federal budget bill, OSHA would be permitted to raise fines for work-place violations by 82 percent starting in August 2016, reports the National Law Review.

 OSHA was previously exempted from a 1990 bill that required federal agencies to raise their fines to keep pace with inflation.
