    OSHA on Tuesday issued three interim final rules intended to protect whistleblowers.

    The rules, published in the Federal Register, establish procedures for handling and investigating retaliation complaints from employees under the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act, the Surface Transportation Assistance Act, and the National Transit Systems Security Act and the Federal Railroad Safety Act.

    Comments on the new rules are due Nov. 1.

    In related news, the Office of Management and Budget is reviewing an OSHA whistleblower rule that would establish procedures for handling discrimination complaints under federal employee protection statutes.
