Filing a Relation Claim Associated with an OSHA Claim
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) provides employees with a range of legal protections against employers who may otherwise attempt to take adverse employment action against them for their involvement in filing an OSHA claim. Now that your employer has allegedly chosen to go ahead and break the law, you should begin to consider what legal action may now be available to you.
OSHA Protections Against Retaliation
Once you elect to file a complaint with OSHA and request an inspection of your workplace, your employer cannot take any adverse legal action against you as retaliation for whatever OSHA discovers during their inspection. If your employer disregarded the law and took action against you anyway, our Austin legal team can help you pursue compensation from your employer, including but not limited to the following:
- Any loss of wages
- Any damage done to your reputation
- Any emotional anguish
Whatever the particulars of your claim, our Austin legal team can develop a comprehensive legal strategy to help you hold your employer accountable for their actions.
