Dallas OSHA Whistleblower Protection Attorney

Are you worried about reporting your employer for violating OSHA regulations? Call (214) 617-1886 and let us help you.

Safety and health are two important aspects of a safe and happy workplace. It thus goes without saying that compromising worker safety or their health can have far-reaching, serious complications which can reverberate and affect hundreds, if not thousands of lives.

OSHA, also known as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, is a government arm with a presence in all states. It was created to ensure that the welfare of workers is taken care of, all the while protecting their rights when it comes to having a safe environment to carry out their work duties.

OSHA violations & whistleblower protection.

Workers who discover that their employers are violating OSHA safety regulations (and thereby putting the health or safety of others in danger) are encouraged to “blow the whistle” and report these violations with OSHA. You as an employee (or independent contractor) are protected against retaliation by your employer under a concept known as “whistleblower protection” (available under the 1989 Whistleblower’s Act).

If you witnessed an illegal act or safety violation on the job site, you may be protected by this Act in one of the following ways:

Whistleblower Protection for Workers
OSHA Whistleblower Protection
  • Protection from work termination.
  • Protection from wage garnishment.
  • Protection from position demotion.
  • Protection from different forms of discrimination.

Some of the OSHA violations that are covered in this Act include:

  1. Safety hazards found in construction sites.
  2. Exposure to hazardous chemicals.
  3. Unsafe workplace and equipment conditions.
  4. Choosing not to comply with safety rules at one’s workplace.
  5. Lack of proper hazard or safety training.

OSHA has a confidential means of reporting anything unsafe you may have witnessed, and it can be accessed via this link. That being said, you should strongly consider discussing your situation with a Dallas OSHA whistleblower attorney before making a report. The call is free ((214) 617-1886), and our attorneys can explain the options available to you, as well as what you may expect when bringing a whistleblower claim.

Time limit to filing a whistleblower report.

It’s important to act quickly, as you’re required to file a report within 30 days of witnessing a violation. In addition, OSHA will need to prove that your claim is related to activity that is protected (workplace safety or health, asbestos in schools, cargo containers, airline, commercial motor carrier, consumer product, environmental, financial reform, food safety, health insurance reform, motor vehicle safety, nuclear, pipeline, public transportation agency, railroad, maritime, motor vehicle safety, and securities laws).

OSHA whistleblower cases can be complicated, but our attorneys are here to help you through the process. By filing a whistleblower claim, not only are you helping protect the safety of workers, but you may also be entitled to a cash award.
