OSHA: Whistle-blowers Can Now File Complaints Online

U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has announced whistle-blowers filing under one of 22 statutes covered by the department can now file the complaint online.

The new online form allows the whistle-blower's complaint to be automatically routed to the appropriate official, and allows for more efficient follow-up from OSHA.

“The ability of workers to speak out and exercise their rights without fear of retaliation provides the backbone for some of American workers’ most essential protections," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health David Michaels, PhD, in a news release. "Whistleblower laws protect not only workers, but also the public at large and now workers will have an additional avenue available to file a complaint with OSHA."
