OSHA Retaliation

OSHA Retaliation Attorneys in Houston

Reporting OSHA Violations Should Not Cost You

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.

If you believe you have been retaliated against for reporting an OSHA violation, contact Kennard Law, P.C. Our Houston OSHA retaliation lawyers fight for the rights of workers throughout Texas.

How Do I Report an OSHA Violation at Work?

If you have knowledge of an OSHA violation, you should:

  • File a complaint with the OSHA as soon as possible. A business can only be cited for a violation if it existed in the past six months.
  • Submit the form either online, mail or by fax to your OSHA regional office. The form will include your contact information in case there are any questions.
  • The OSHA will investigate the complaint and determine if the employer will be cited.

If you believe that there has been an OSHA violation, you have the right to report it without fear of retaliation from your employer. Take action as soon as possible so that other employees are not harmed by the unsafe working conditions.

Were You Fired After 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.

The attorneys of Kennard Law, P.C., understand that it is no coincidence that your termination quickly followed your report of an OSHA violation. As skilled OSHA retaliation attorneys in Houston, our experience allows us to get to the truth and gather the evidence necessary to prove your employer's wrongdoing. We will strive to help you get your job back or get you compensation.
