Michigan Court of Appeals
The Small Business Legal Center supported an application to the Michigan Court of Appeals for review of a Michigan Circuit County Court decision. The Circuit Court sustained a Michigan OSHA Administrative Law Judge decision that requires hazard assessments to be conducted under in all Michigan workplaces. The ruling would require hazard assessments in workplaces where no hazards requiring personal protective equipment could possibly be present, such as offices.
Status: DECIDED. Amicus brief filed in support of UPS’s application 05/24/06. Review granted in October 2006. Amicus brief filed for case on 01/25/07. On 11/16/07, the appellate court reversed the lower court. On 6/13/08, the Michigan Supreme Court refused to hear MIOSHA’s appeal.
