A former Chief Financial Officer of the Company filed a complaint against the Company with the US Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) on March 9, 2015. This complaint was dismissed by OSHA in January 2018 without any findings against the Company. On March 14, 2018 an appeal was filed. The Company has and will continue to vigorously defend this appeal and believes that this appeal hearing will not result in any findings against the Company. On September 6, 2019, the Company filed a motion for summary decision seeking a decision in its favor as a matter of law. There has been no decision on this motion as of the date of these consolidated financial statements. As of December 31, 2019, and 2018, legal fees of approximately $6,000 and $4,000 were owed, respectively, and are expected to be paid in full by the Company’s insurance carriers.
