Firm Secures Dismissal of OSHA Complaint
Jehan Martinez and Jennifer Cornely successfully secured the dismissal of an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (“OSHA”) complaint filed with the US Department of Labor by a former employee of a client. The client is a full-service general contractor with operations on Guam. The complaint asserted claims of retaliatory employment practices in violation of whistleblower provisions which the client strenuously denied.
After receiving a response prepared by Ms. Cornely the Secretary of the US Department of Labor dismissed the complaint stating there was no reasonable cause to believe that the client violated the Occupational Safety and Health Act or the Surface Transportation Assistance Act.
