If I File A Complaint, Will It Be Kept Confidential?

Yes. Complaints are retyped and all personal identifiers are removed. Your name is not put on the complaint form. Employees are also protected from discrimination for filing a complaint with VOSHA. If you are a victim of discrimination as the result of having filed a complaint, you should contact VOSHA within 30 days. Employees who are discriminated against may also file a private action against their employer.
