TEXO ABC/AGC, Inc. v. Perez, No. 3:16-CV 1998-L (N.D. Tex. Nov. 28, 2016)

Articles Discussing Case:

OSHA Anti-Retaliation Rule Will Take Effect December 1

FordHarrison LLP • December 01, 2016
Executive Summary: A federal judge on November 28 refused to block implementation of the anti-retaliation provisions of OSHA’s recordkeeping and reporting rule scheduled to take effect December 1, 2016. The business groups challenging the rule (collectively TEXO) argued that it would unlawfully prohibit or limit incident-based employer safety incentive programs and/or routine mandatory post-accident drug testing programs. The court held that the rule’s challengers failed to show that irreparable harm would result or that the public interest would be disserved if the court did not grant an injunction.
