As a worker, you should be able to speak out and exercise your rights without fear of employer retaliation. If you feel you have been retaliated or discriminated against, it is now easier than ever to file a complaint. OSHA has launched an online form where workers can submit retaliation complaints 24 hours a day.
The online form will provide workers who have been retaliated against an additional way to reach out to OSHA. It prompts the worker to include basic complaint information so they can be easily contacted for follow-up.
Before the launch of the online form, workers looking to report a complaint would have to call OSHA’s hotline or file a written complaint. Now, all workers have to do is visit this website. Since filing a complaint is faster and can be done online, we hope workers will feel more comfortable doing so.
