OSHA is suing a Harlem community-development nonprofit for allegedly retaliating against an employee who complained about unsafe working conditions.
The lawsuit against the East Harlem Council for Community Improvement says the group suspended the employee and began investigating her performance after she contacted OSHA about dangerous assignments she had received. Following the investigation, the company terminated her.
OSHA then conducted its own investigation, and found evidence supporting the woman’s contention that she was fired in retaliation for threatening to contact OSHA.
The lawsuit seeks reinstatement for the employee, plus back pay with interest and compensatory damages.
