OSHA Open During Partial Government Shutdown

By Robert G. Chadwick, Jr., Managing Member, Seltzer, Chadwick, Soefje & Ladik, PLLC.

Although many federal agencies have been affected by the partial government shutdown, the U.S. Department of Labor is not one of these agencies. The U.S. Department of Labor, including OSHA, has already been fully funded through September 30, 2019, as part of the Department of Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services, and Education Appropriations Act, 2019 and Continuing Appropriations Act, 2019, signed into law by President Trump on September 28, 2018.

Accordingly, OSHA remains open, and is conducting work site inspections, despite the partial government shutdown.
