One of the Unit II essay questions asks you to discuss “Employer Defenses” to a citation. Please note that there are five such defenses discussed in the text beginning on page 74. You must discuss all five in order to receive full credit for the essay. You must also include some case law in your discussion. Please note that “multi-employer worksite” is not a defense.
