New Method for Submitting OSHA Whistleblower Complaints

The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA)’s Whistleblower Protection Program is now accepting whistleblower complaints filed online. The online form can be completed electronically or downloaded and submitted by fax, mail or hand-delivery to a regional office.  The form asks basic information of the employee, including:

  • Contact information;
  • Bargaining unit representative information;
  • Employer and supervisor information; and
  • Details of the alleged discriminatory or retaliatory conduct.

Having multiple avenues through which a complaint can be filed is a best practice for an effective whistleblower practice. Other whistleblower best practices can be found here..
