DOL/OSHA RIN: 1218-AD38 Publication ID: Fall 2023 
Title: Procedures for the Handling of Retaliation Complaints Under the Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act 

OSHA is promulgating procedures for the handling and investigation of complaints pursuant to the Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act (CAARA) of 2019.  This new law prohibits employers from retaliating against certain whistleblowers who report criminal antitrust violations to the federal government or their supervisors, or who cause to be filed, testify or participate in, or otherwise assist in an investigation or proceeding relating to a violation of antitrust laws. The law’s whistleblower protections cover employees, contractors, subcontractors, and agents. Promulgation of this procedural regulation will aid in the efficient processing of complaints under this new statutory provision.
