The problem would be if an employee contracted something while using those gloves. Theres always the possibility that workers comp could deny the claim and drag the claim out. That equals more costs to the employee who has to pay out of pocket.

Having worked as a supervisor this could also make you a liable party in a law suite for not providing proper PPE to prevent an exposure. Not to mention OSHA fines.
