OSHA Retaliation Claims

OSHA Retaliation Claims Help for Employers

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is responsible for ensuring worker health and safety on job sites across the United States. If an employee feels they are being exposed to hazards in their workplace or that a violation has occurred, OSHA provides them the right to file a complaint or to request that an inspection is conducted.

When an employee files a complaint, they are protected under OSHA’s Whistleblower Protection Program which prohibits employer retaliation. Retaliation may come in the form of termination, reprimanding, threatening, or demotion as a means to punish the employee for reporting. If an employee feels that an employer is acting in retaliation, a retaliation complaint can be submitted.

Retaliation complaints against an employer may be grounded, but it can also be unjustified for various reasons. To safeguard your company against OSHA retaliation claims, you need an OSHA attorney skilled in handling OSHA claims against employers.

For help with an OSHA retaliation claim, please call 813-579-3278 to speak with an OSHA attorney.
