OSHA has sued a Texas-based company for violating the whistleblower provisions of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. The lawsuit against Continental Alloys and Services Inc. in Spring, Texas, maintains that an investigation found sufficient evidence to support a former employee’s allegation that Continental Alloys and Services wrongfully fired the worker after she complained to management about OSHA 300 log reporting deficiencies. According to OSHA, the former employee reported several alleged instances where injuries were not reported. In an attempt to gather evidence of the reporting deficiencies, the employee recorded a meeting with the individual responsible for reporting the injuries. These actions led to the employee’s termination.
