Collins Einhorn Farrell attorney Bob Tice was among the attorneys interviewed for Katie Siegel’s “Retaliation Is Futile” in Risk & Insurance. This article discusses OSHA’s increasing pursuit of claims against employers suspected of retaliating against workers who report injuries. As demonstrated by a recent action against AT&T in Ohio, an employer that cites an injured employee for failing to observe safety protocols runs the risk of being accused of retaliation. OSHA may contend that the employer is creating disincentives to report injuries.
“Retaliation Is Futile” draws on insight from Bob and other attorneys to discuss how employers can avoid retaliation claims while enforcing safety standards.
