OSHA yesterday announced its interim final rule for “Procedures for Handling Retaliation Complaints Under the Employee Protection Provision of the Consumer Financial Protection Act of 2010,” 79 Fed. Reg. 18630 (April 3, 2014).  These rules are in effect immediately, but could be revised by OSHA after the comment period.

James Curtis, Ada Dolph, and Craig Simonsen have prepared a Workplace Whistleblower Perspective that reviews and provides analysis of the new interim final rule. Check it out here.

The interim final rule is effective on April 3, 2014, with comments submitted to Docket No. OSHA–2011–0540 due by June 2, 2014.
