New OSHA Rules Delayed

On July 13th OSHA announced that they are delaying enforcement of the rule that would have effectively outlawed automatic post-accident drug testing.  

Enforcement was originally scheduled to begin on August 10, 2016, but has been delayed until November 1, 2016 to allow OSHA to "conduct additional outreach and provide educational materials and guidance for employers."

Humana to Leave Key ObamaCare Markets
Humana, one of the nation's top health insurers, is pulling out of the state healthcare exchanges in all but 11 states after a year of nearly $1 billion in losses. 
The company plans to exit nearly half of the markets next year, it announced during an earnings report in mid-July.  It will take part in "no more" than 11 state marketplaces, d own from 19 states this year, the company said. 
Humana's decision to exit "substantially all" of the state exchanges comes the same day that the Obama administration announced it would step in to block a multibillion-dollar merger between Humana and Aetna.  Both are among the nation's five biggest health insurers.
Another of those top five, UnitedHealth Group, announced earlier this year that it would be pulling out of most state healthcare marketplaces, citing its own financial losses.

Aetna, the third-largest health insurer in the US, said on August 2nd that it was also reconsidering its offerings on the state exchanges.  Aetna's CEO also said the company was "undertaking a complete evaluation" of the Obamacare business. On its conference call, the company said it expected an annual loss on its ACA business "in excess of $300 million."

Wisconsin Labor Law Posting Update Required
As of July 1, 2016, employers in Wisconsin who employ at least 50 individuals are required to post "in one or more conspicuous places" a poster developed by the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development which states the employee's rights under Wisconsin's new "Bone Marrow and Organ Donation Leave Act."  

The Bone Marrow and Organ Donation Leave Act requires that all employers with 50 or more permanent employees must allow employees up to six weeks leave in a 12-month period for the purpose of serving as a bone marrow or organ donor, if the employee provides his or her employer with written verification that the employee is to serve as a bone marrow or organ donor.

Leave may be taken only for the period necessary for the employee to undergo the donation procedure and to recover from the procedure.  

The law applies only to an employee who has worked for the employer more than 52 consecutive weeks and for at least 1000 hours during that 52-week period.
