Is this a correct way of grounding in new construction?
I would think it is not right in any construction.
looks like a bootleg ground from ohio,not good anywhere…
What did your circuit analyzer tell you?
Welcome to our forum, Michael!..Enjoy!
It is hard to believe that they would do that on new construction, let alone anytime.
Yes, it appears to be bootleg ground, where they connect the grounding (bare) conductor to the grounded (neutral) conductor to make the receptacle appear grounded.
Thank you all for your help.
