OSHA: Absence on doctor's order was protected activity
May 12, 2010 by Ross Runkel at LawMemo

A Port Authority Trans-Hudson Corp employee, under a doctor's order, was absent from work while recovering from a work related injury. The employer suspended him for absenteeism.

The employee filed a whistleblower complaint with OSHA, and OSHA concluded that following a doctor's order is a protected safety-related act.

OSHA has ordered backpay and expungement of records.
