OSHA announces alternative whistleblower resolution plan

OSHA is piloting an alternative dispute resolution (ADR) pilot program for complaints filed within the agency’s Whistleblower Protection Program. OSHA administers whistleblower provisions of 22 federal statutes. These cover employees in health care, food, finance, air travel, pipeline, transit, rail, and other industries.
The program will be rolled out in the two OSHA regions headquartered in Chicago and San Francisco. It offers two voluntary methods of ADR—early resolution and mediation.

When a whistleblower complaint is filed with OSHA in one of the regions, the parties will be notified of their options and may work through an OSHA ADR coordinator to use these methods.

OSHA Administrator Dr. David Michaels observed, “OSHA is committed to fair, effective, and timely enforcement of the whistleblower laws delegated to us by Congress. Alternative dispute resolution can provide immediate relief and finality to both parties.”
