DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AC47 Publication ID: Fall 2011 
Title: Procedures for the Handling of Retaliation Complaints Under the Employee Protection Provisions of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act (CPSIA) of 2008 
Abstract: OSHA is promulgating procedures for the handling and investigation of retaliation complaints pursuant to section 219 of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008. This section established a new whistleblower protection statute to be administered by OSHA that provides protection from retaliation to employees in the consumer product industry, including employees of manufacturers, importers, private labelers, distributors, and retailers, who report reasonably believed violations of the Consumer Product Safety Act or any other Act enforced by the Consumer Product Safety Commission, or any order, rule, regulation, standard, or ban under those Acts. Pursuant to the statute, the procedures will include remedies and legal burdens of proof provisions. Additionally, the Act includes a "kick-out" provision that allows the complainant to file the complaint in District Court if the Secretary has not issued a final determination within 210 days, or within 90 days after receiving a written determination. Promulgation of a regulation is necessary to govern whistleblower investigations conducted under the new statute.
