Good News for American Workers, Whistleblower Protection Advisory Committee Will Be Re-established

 The U.S. Department of Labor’s Secretary of Labor Thomas Perez recently announced that the charter of the Whistleblower Protection Advisory Committee (“WPAC”) will be re-established.   WPAC advises the Department of Occupational Safety & Health Administration (“OSHA”) on ways to ensure the effectiveness, transparency, and protection of whistleblowers.  By continuing to obtain advice from worker advocates, labor experts, attorneys, and workers, WPAC will be able to further improve the regulations governing whistleblowing and the cooperative activities between OSHA and other government agencies. 

 

As a firm specializing in workers’ compensation, Pond Lehocky sees the effects of dangerous, unreported work hazards every day.  We hope the renewal of the activities and powers of WPAC will help to decrease accidents in dangerous workplaces.
