The federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) takes an aggressive apporach to multi-employer worksites and finding alleged “joint-employers” liable for labor law violations. Because of new regulations, employers on multi-employer worksites face increased fines, costly abatement responsibilities, and potential criminal liability.
