Whistleblowers and OSHA

Did you know, you have the right to file a whistleblower complaint with OSHA if your employer has taken an unfavorable personnel action because you engaged in a protected activity relating to workplace safety or health, asbestos in schools, cargo containers, airline, commercial motor carrier, consumer product, environmental, financial reform, food safety, health insurance reform, motor vehicle safety, nuclear, pipeline, public transportation agency, railroad, maritime, motor vehicle safety, and securities laws? In order to prevail in such a whistleblower claim, it must be proven that your employer retaliated against you because you engaged in a protected activity that was a contributing or motivating factor in its decision to take an unfavorable personnel action against you. Examples of such retaliatory actions can be extensive and may include failing to hire or rehire, making threats, intimidation, reducing pay or hours, suspension, or termination. However, filing claims with OSHA have very short time periods, some as short as thirty days. If you believe that your employer has retaliated against you for exercising your legal rights, contact Caldwell Law Group, PLLC, now to determine your rights.
