On November 1, 2018, the Office of Administrative Law approved an emergency action regarding the electronic filing of 300A forms. The purpose of the amendments is to conform California's recordkeeping requirements to the federal OSHA program.

· All employers with 250 or more employees, unless specifically exempted by section 14300.2 of title 8 of the California Code of Regulations.
· Employers with 20 to 249 employees in the specific industries listed in Appendix H of the emergency regulations.
