Washington — OSHA is asking for public input on an interim final rule that governs the whistleblower protections provision of the Criminal Antitrust Anti-Retaliation Act of 2019.

Effective immediately, the rule establishes time frames and procedures for handling retaliation complaints under the law, which was enacted in December 2020. The rule includes provisions on OSHA investigations, appeals and administrative law judge hearings.

Comments are due April 11.

“A final rule will be published after OSHA receives and reviews the public’s comments,” the agency says.
