The Occupational Safety and Health Administration has recently revised its online whistleblower complaint form to assist users in filing a complaint with the appropriate agency.
The newly updated form guides individuals as they file a complaint by providing essential questions at the beginning so they can better understand and exercise their rights under relevant laws.
“Workers who report unsafe conditions and wrongdoing have a range of legal protections from retaliation,” said Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health Loren Sweatt. “The revised online complaint form works to ensure whistleblowers file their complaints with the appropriate federal agency for prompt action.”
In addition to the online form, complaints may be filed by fax, mail or hand-delivery by contacting the agency on 800-321-6742 or through an OSHA regional or area office.
