ExxonMobil to pay reinstated employees $800K in OSHA whistleblower ruling


Oil and gas giant ExxonMobil must reinstate two previously fired employees and pay them more than $800,000 in back wages, interest, and compensatory damages after the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) determined the terminations to be illegal.

OSHA’s ruling, announced Friday, follows a federal whistleblower investigation into the actions of ExxonMobil. The probe found the company violated provisions of the Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX).

OSHA is a division of the U.S. Department of Labor.
