Individuals are protected from retaliation for reporting safety or security violations.
It is a violation for an employer to take unfavorable personnel action against an employee because they engaged in protected activity relating to workplace safety and health. We can help workers file a complaint with OSHA if their employer retaliates against them.
Common protected areas include:
Commercial Motor Carrier safety
Air Carrier safety
SEC rules or regulations
Railroad Carrier safety or security
Public Transportation safety or security
Hunegs, LeNeave & Kvas has successfully represented workers who have wrongfully suffered disciplinary action against them in violation of this protective law. We have helped workers receive punitive damages and back-pay with interest from their employer.
