The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is seeking public comments on a draft document intended to provide guidance to employers on preventing retaliation against whistleblowers.
OSHA said it is especially interested in comments related to ensuring that:
Anti-retaliation concepts are described clearly;
Important features of an anti-retaliation program are included;
Challenges in implementing these practices are addressed; and
Issues specific to small businesses are addressed.
OSHA said it is hoping to receive comments from a wide range of stakeholders. Comments, which will be accepted until Jan. 19, 2016, should be submitted through regulations.gov. Any questions may be directed to Meghan Smith, firstname.lastname@example.org.
