December 26, 2008, Newsletter Issue #148: The Whistleblower Program

Tip of the Week

As the name implies, the “Whistleblower Program,” established by OSHA was setup to protect employees who complain to the OSHA about their working conditions, and the lack of safety in their workplace.

The “Whistleblower Program,” is mandated under the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and prohibits any employee from being fired or discriminated against, after filing an OSHA complaint. Based on the guidelines established for the “Whistleblower Program,” employees have a right to participate in inspections against their employer, submit complaints about OSHA violations, and be a witness in the OSHA's case against their employer. So if you have to make complaints about your workplace safety, know the “Whistleblower Program” is there to protect you.
