Description: The Department of Labor, through the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), is responsible for investigating alleged violations of whistleblower provisions contained in certain Federal laws that prohibit retaliatory action by employers against employees who report unsafe or unlawful practices. These whistleblower protections prohibit an employer from discharging or otherwise retaliating against an employee with respect to compensation, terms, conditions or privileges of employment because the employee engages in any of the activities specified in the particular statute as a protected activity. This information collection covers the whistleblower protection provisions under the following statutes: (1) Safe Water Drinking Act, 42 U.S.C. 300j–9(I); (2) Water Pollution Control Act, 33 U.S.C. 1367; (3) Toxic Substances Control Act, 15 U.S.C. 2622; (4) Solid Waste Disposal Act, 42 U.S.C. 7001; (5) Clean Air Act, 42 U.S.C. 7622; (6) Energy Reorganization Act of 1974, 42 U.S.C. 5851, (7) Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation VerDate Aug<31>2005 22:03 Nov 23, 2007 Jkt 214001 and Liability Act of 1980, 42 U.S.C. 9610, (8) Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century, 49 U.S.C. 42121 (AIR 21), (9) Sarbanes-Oxley Act, 18 U.S.C. 1514A, and (10) Pipeline Safety Improvement Act, 49 U.S.C. 60129. Regulations at 29 CFR part 24, 29 CFR part 1979, 29 CFR part 1980, and 29 CFR part 1981 set forth the procedures for the handling of retaliation complaints under these Federal employee protection statutes. Employees who believe that they have been discriminated against by employers, in violation of whistleblower provisions in certain law, for reporting unlawful practices that adversely affect occupational safety and health, and the environment, are required to place their allegations in writing so they may, where appropriate, be investigated by the Department of Labor.
