    Cazenovia, N.Y., pays nearly $100,000 in damages and back wages to whistleblower following investigation by U.S. Labor Department's OSHA - OSHA News Release
    Following a whistleblower investigation by the U.S. Labor Department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the town of Cazenovia, N.Y., has paid nearly $100,000 in damages and back wages to an employee who was injured during a retaliatory work assignment and suffered other retaliatory actions after he raised concerns protected under federal environmental laws.

    'Employees have a right to raise legitimate environmental and safety concerns without fear of retaliation, discrimination, harassment or being put in harm's way,' said Patricia K. Clark, OSHA's regional administrator, whose New York office conducted the investigation.
