While the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does conduct workplace inspections, it also relies on reports from workers to know when violations are taking place so that the violations can be corrected and the health and safety of workers is not jeopardized.
When an OSHA violation is reported, an employer may be faced with fines or the cost of fixing the violation. Unfortunately, there are employers who will take out their dissatisfaction at these expenses on the employee who reported the violation. Reporting employees may suddenly find themselves without a job. This is referred to as retaliation, and it is illegal.
You Cannot Be Fired For Reporting An OSHA Violation
You reported an OSHA violation and suddenly found yourself out of work. It is likely that your employer tried to mask the retaliatory termination. Perhaps you were told that the termination was the result of some sort of infraction. Maybe it was a minor infraction that would not otherwise lead to termination. Maybe no infraction actually happened and false allegations have been made against you.

Our experience allows us to get to the truth and gather the evidence necessary to prove your employer's wrongdoing. We will help you get your job back or get you compensation.
