Act Quickly: 30-Day Statute of Limitations for IOSHA Retaliation Claims

The Whistleblower Protection Unit of the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Administration (IOSHA) investigates claims of retaliation against employees for exercising rights under the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Act.  Importantly, in order to bring an IOSHA retaliation claim, under Indiana Code 22-8-1.1-38.1, employees must file a complaint with the IOSHA Commissioner within thirty calendar days of the alleged discrimination against the employee for either filing a safety complaint or testifying in support of a safety complaint.  For more information about IOSHA whistleblower protection, please visit IOSHA's web site.
