Statement from OSHA Regional Administrator Richard Mendelson on U.S.
Case involved United Steelworkers disciplined over injury reporting policy
"OSHA is extremely pleased with this settlement, which requires the payment of back wages to U.S. Steel employees who were disciplined after reporting of injuries to their employer, along with significant changes in US Steel's injury and incident reporting policies. OSHA and the regional Office of the Solicitor partnered to negotiate this outstanding agreement, which ensures that employees can properly report on-the-job injuries without fear of retaliation."
