Since the European Court of Justice declared invalid the Safe Harbor agreement between the U.S. Dept. of Commerce and the European Commission for the transfer of personal data, hundreds of U.S. multinationals have been struggling to find an alternative.
OSHA recently published its final rule on electronic reporting of workplace injuries and illnesses. Under this new reporting standard, employer policies that request or require post- accident drug or alcohol testing will face new scrutiny by OSHA.
In response to the announcement of a "Privacy Shield" to replace the invalidated U.S.-EU Safe Harbor Framework for cross-border data transfers, the EU's Working Party has expressed reservations and provided limited guidance for U.S. multinationals.
In a long-awaited and much-anticipated announcement, the U.S. Department of Commerce and the European Commission (the “Commission”) declared on February 2, 2016, that they had struck a deal on a new cross-border data transfer framework.
