Class description

The COVID-19 pandemic has tremendously affected employment in the U.S. Many employees have been laid off while employees who remain on the job are facing new safety and health issues. As a result, OSHA has experienced an increase in whistleblower complaints.

During this one-hour webinar, Edwin Foulke Jr., an attorney for Fisher & Phillips LLP, will discuss how to handle a whistleblower investigation properly.

After participating in this webinar, attendees will be able to:

  • Recognize protective activity—especially COVID-19 activity—covered under various whistleblower statutes
  • Explain why actions taken by your company are not covered under federal whistleblower laws
  • Identify how to handle an OSHA whistleblower inspection and properly respond to OSHA investigators
  • Explain how employers’ responses to COVID-19 employment actions, as well as layoffs, discipline and/or any other terminations of employee were proper and neither discriminatory nor retaliatory
