Steven M. Swirsky, a Member of the Firm in the Employment, Labor & Workforce Management and Health Care and Life Sciences practices, in the firm’s New York office, was quoted in Business Insurance, in “OSHA’s Union Rep Inspection Policy Under Fire,” by Gloria Gonzalez.
Following is an excerpt:
The rule “was something that I think a lot of us saw as intended or designed or at least having the effect of giving unions access to workers or access to workplaces where they otherwise would not have it,” said Steven Swirsky, a New York-based member of Epstein Becker & Green P.C. …
“I don’t think anyone should read this decision as a safe harbor for denying a union representative access to participate,” Mr. Swirsky said. “I think the court’s analysis and the court’s refusal to dismiss the lawsuit gives some basis to be hopeful that the outcome is going to be favorable for employers, but it’s not there yet.”
