Who has authority to bring legal actions on his behalf? We live in Georgia, and I am the sole caregiver for my 32 year old son. He was diagnosed with inoperable stage IV Colorectal cancer with bi-lateral metastasis both lungs. Long story short his wife left when he was diagnosed. He was placed in hospice around Thanksgiving. I dont even know who OSAH is, and we haven't filed any legal action. We don't have an attorney and have been repeatedly turned down for medicaid even though he was approved through compassionate allowance for SSDI in July 2017. Help please.

Sorry, disregard my post. Got my letters switched. Should have clicked on Barbs site. Gives you good info.

Since the 11th is not far off, you really need to call.

Is your sons health a result of working in a place using a chemical unsafely. Exposed to asbestosis or anything that could cause his health problems? Is he in a class action suit because of this?

OSHA stands for Occupational Health and Safety Administration. They are part of the government who oversee safety in the workplace. They require that employees working in hazardous conditions have training to help minimize exposure. That safety precautions by the employer are carried out. Records need to be kept

I doubt that son will be required to be there under the circumstances. OSAH is on his side. Its probably an investigation concerning the employer. I doubt if he is the only one getting this notice and may not be required to attend anyway. Its just a notice that a hearing is being held.
Call the number on the paperwork and see if I am correct.

The OP is dealing with OSAH not OSHA. 2 very different entities. OSAH does not investigate employers.

There must be a number on the paperwork you can call. Ask them what it is reference to. Hopefully your son is able to say its OK they talk to you. Explain that your son is on Hospice and cannot physically attend the hearing. They may require proof of this in writing.

Possibly Office of State Administrative Hearings. Did you request a reconsideration of the Medicaid denial? This would be a hearing about that. Prepare and go to it.
