OSHA Penalties Increasing by 78 Percent After August 1, 2016

Section 701 of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 contains the Federal Civil Penalties Inflation Adjustment Improvements Act of 2015, which requires the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and most other federal agencies to implement inflation-adjusted civil penalty increases. The Inflation Adjustment Act also allows OSHA a one time “catch-up adjustment” to adjust for inflation since 1990 (the last time penalties were adjusted) along with annual adjustments for inflation based on the Consumer Price Index. OSHA was required to publish the new penalty levels through an interim final rule in the Federal Register by July 1, 2016. Subsequently, OSHA adjusted the penalty levels whi

Thieves Go High-Tech to Steal Cars

Police and car insurers say thieves are using laptop computers to hack into late-model cars' electronic ignitions to steal the vehicles, raising alarms about the auto industry's greater use of computer controls. The discovery follows a recent incident in Houston in which a pair of car thieves were caught on camera using a laptop to start a 2010 Jeep Wrangler and steal it from the owner's driveway. Police say the same method may have been used in the theft of four other late-model Wranglers and Cherokees in the city. None of the vehicles has been recovered. "If you are going to hot-wire a car, you don't bring along a laptop," said Senior Officer James Woods, who has spent 23 years in the Hous

Wage Hike Will Cost CA Taxpayers $3.6B

Raising the minimum wage in California to the highest statewide level in the nation would eventually cost taxpayers an additional $3.6 billion a year in higher pay for government employees, legislative analysts determined. The estimate was disclosed as an Assembly committee gave initial approval Wednesday to boosting the wage to $15 an hour by 2022. The full state Assembly and Senate could vote on the deal between Democratic Gov. Jerry Brown and labor unions as early as Thursday. The financial projection does not examine the broader economic impact that the proposed wage hike would have on businesses in the state. The University of California, Berkeley, Center for Labor Research and Educati
