What To Do If Your Employer Hasn’t Followed OSHA Regulations
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) exists to help companies create and manage safe working conditions. Unfortunately, some companies don’t take the appropriate steps to keep their workers safe. When employment laws aren’t followed, the risk of serious injuries and environmental hazards increases.
At Carter Law Offices, we believe that companies shouldn’t take advantage of their workers. Our attorney is passionate about advocating for employees’ rights and will fight for you if your company has put you or your co-workers in danger by not following OSHA regulations.
How The Whistleblower Protection Program Works
If your workplace has failed to provide adequate training, safety equipment or a safe work environment or to meet other OSHA guidelines, you shouldn’t be afraid to speak up. OSHA’s Whistleblower Protection Program shields employees who come forward to report their employers from retaliation. If you file a complaint about your workplace with OSHA, your employer may not:
- Fire you or lay you off
- Demote you
- Deny you pay, overtime pay or a promotion
- Intimidate, harass, threaten or mock you
- Isolate you physically or emotionally
Discipline you in another way
