The Workforce Protections Subcommittee of the House Education and Labor Committee will be holding a hearing tomorrow at 10:00 am on the whistleblower provisions in Protecting America’s Workers Act (H.R. 2067). These provisions apply to violations of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA), which cover approximately 60% of corporate whistleblower complaints. The proposed changes are designed to update workplace whistleblower protections by mirroring other modern whistleblower statutes, such as the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act. It will provide stronger anti-retaliation protections for workers who blow the whistle on dangerous workplace conditions. Please visit the committee website for a list of witnesses and to watch the hearing online.
