If your business involves creating, distributing or selling consumer products, make sure your managers know they can’t retaliate against employees who voice complaints about the products’ safety.
President Bush recently signed a bill—the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008—that makes it illegal for employers to retaliate in any way (e.g., firing, demotion, pay cut, etc.) against workers who speak up about alleged product safety violations.
The law is the broadest of more than a dozen federal laws aimed at protecting whistle-blowers in specific industries
or jobs. To learn more about the new law and other whistle-blower laws, go to www.osha.gov/dep/oia/whistleblower.
