This year, in addition to increased inflationary costs, small businesses are having to tackle compliance with regulations that have convoluted standards and excessive red tape. Suzio cites specific issues with OSHA’s tracking workplace injuries and illnesses rule, the change regarding workplace inspections, MSHA’s silica rule, the independent contractor rule, the overtime rule, Davis Bacon Act and the joint-employer definition.
“The financial strain such regulations place on us is substantial, with many of us absorbing these costs,” said Suzio. “Over time, this financial burden risks driving consolidation within the industry, overshadowing the essential role of small businesses.”
