Employment Law This Week (November 16, 2015) has released bonus footage of its interview with Valerie Butera, a Member of the Firm at Epstein Becker Green.

As Ms. Butera discusses, OSHA fines are set to increase for the first time in 25 years. Under the new bipartisan budget bill, OSHA civil penalties will rise next year to reflect the difference between the Consumer Price Index in 1990 and in 2015—an increase of as much as 82%. After this "catch up" adjustment, the fines will keep pace with inflation moving forward. Click here for Ms. Butera's recent blog post on the topic.
