Attorney Joel Shields Secures Settlement for OSHA Whistleblower

S&R attorney Joel Shields represented a wrongfully terminated worker against his former employer, an agricultural pesticide manufacturer. During his employment the worker sustained a chemical exposure to his eyes which he reported to his employer while also complaining about unsafe workplace conditions.  When the worker was subsequently fired, Attorney Shields filed a whistleblower complaint against the employer with Occupational Safety and Health Administration under Section 11(c) of the OSH Act of 1970. The parties were able to resolve the worker’s claims through use of the alternative dispute resolution services offered by OSHA.
