The Occupational Safety and Health Administration regulates safety in the workplace and provides protection to employees who report violations of OSHA safety regulations. Employees may report unsafe working conditions, such as unsafe equipment, misuse of hazardous chemicals, lack of safety training, failure to follow workplace safety rules and construction safety hazards. Employees who report OSHA violations are protected from discrimination, retaliation and retaliatory discharge.
Determining whether to pursue a legal claim is an important decision. You should be aware of your rights and prepared to take action if your rights are violated. Bell & Bell LLP offers free initial consultations, and we will take the time necessary to understand your situation and concerns.
