MS&A Employment Department Expands OSHA Compliance & Defense Practice

When the COVID-19 Pandemic brought new attention to occupational health and safety, Michael Sullivan and Associates became the go-to resource for clients and all California employers. Through countless free webinars and the acclaimed live e-book, Navigating COVID-19: A Legal Guide for California Employers, we guided employers through the ever-changing emergency mandates and the onslaught of new legislation.

Building off that success, MSA’s Employment Law section is excited to announce the expansion of its practice to include counseling and representing employers over a broader range of OSHA health and safety issues, including:

  • Compliance with OSHA and Cal/OSHA regulations
  • Drafting Injury and Illness Prevention Program documents
  • Advising on incident reporting
  • Assisting with inspection preparation
  • Helping implement abatement measures
  • Negotiating citation reclassifications and penalty reductions, including alleged Serious, Willful, and Repeat violations
  • Litigating citation appeals before the Occupational Safety & Health Appeals Board and seeking judicial review of Board rulings
  • Providing timely client updates on developing issues, such as COVID-19 and Monkeypox

From preventative measures to protect employees and head off regulatory problems before they occur, to aggressive advocacy on behalf of employers during inspections, informal conferences, and administrative and judicial appeals, MSA’s Employment Law section provides cost-effective, responsive representation to deal with any occupational safety and health challenge. We will continue to produce informative employer resources like Navigating COVID-19: A Legal Guide for California Employers, a comprehensive joint effort of the Employment Law section and MSA’s renowned Workers’ Compensation division, containing answers to any COVID-19 California employment law and workers’ compensation questions employers may have.
