The standards approved in July 2020 had flaws. These standards were pushed though with little input from all business types & sizes and they go way beyond federal standards. Just a few examples of how these regulations are expensive, confusing, and difficult for small business:
Regulation that is unclear & not flexible is the very last thing VA needs to make permanent. We need to allow businesses the flexibility to keep employees safe as well as their own families. Look around! Small business owners have risen to the challenge to make VA safe. People acting like making these temporary regulations permanent is going to improve VA are just uneducated about the actual regulations they supposedly support.
Oppose making these regulations permanent. They should remain flexible so they can be changed as needed!
