The statutes enforced by OSHA are listed below. They contain whistleblower or anti-retaliation provisions that generally provide that employers may not discharge or retaliate against an employee because the employee has filed a complaint or otherwise exercised any rights provided to employees. Each law requires that complaints be filed within a certain number of days after the alleged retaliation. Complaints may be filed orally or in writing, and OSHA will accept the complaint in any language. Click on any statute to see the whistleblower provisions:
