Feb. 18: Guideline on Identifying Supervisors Released


The MOL released a guideline called, “Who is a Supervisor under the OHS Act?” The guideline explains the applicable law and includes examples and court decisions. It also has two lists of “powers and responsibilities that may be exercised or carried out by a supervisor”:

  • The first list includes powers that are “primary indicators of being in a supervisory role”
  • The second list “includes responsibilities that would generally be carried out on the job site by a front-line supervisor who interacts directly with workers.”
