OSHA Whistleblower Protection

Nevada Revised Statutes (NRS) § 618.445 and 29 USC 660(c) provide that a person “who believes that he has been discharged or otherwise discriminated against” may file a complaint within 30 days of the alleged discriminatory act. Such a person may file the complaint with either Nevada OSHA or federal OSHA, because Nevada is an OSHA-approved state, which means that all complaints filed with federal OSHA will be forwarded to Nevada OSHA for investigation.
