Protection Against Retaliation and/or Discrimination
Names of complainants are kept confidential; the act gives complainants the right to request their names not be revealed to their employers.
Employers are prohibited from discharging or discriminating against an employee who has exercised any right under the TOSHA Act, including the right to make safety or health complaints or to request an inspection from TOSHA.
Complaints from employees who believe they have been discriminated against will be investigated by TOSHA. Such a complaint should be filed as soon as possible since TOSHA normally can only accept complaints filed within thirty (30) days of the alleged discriminatory action. Please contact our statewide toll-free number at (800) 249-8510.
