Employees in the environmental and aviation industries will benefit from two
new Whistleblower Protection fact sheets, presented by the U.S. Department of
Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).
Individuals who report violations of environmental laws related to asbestos;
air emissions; hazardous and solid waste cleanup and disposal; discharges of
pollutants in waters; and control of toxic chemicals are protected from
employer retaliation. Air carrier employees, contractors and subcontractors are
also protected from retaliation for reporting violations of federal laws
associated with aviation safety.
