New Food Safety Worker Protections

The Food Safety Modernization Act (‘Act’) protects workers who disclose food safety concerns.  If you work for a company that manufactures, processes, packs, transports, distributes, receives, holds or imports food, the Act protects you from employer retaliation from reporting safety concerns.

Prior the the Act, employees faced retaliation and termination if they reported food safety concerns to their employers or to the government.

There are time limits for filing retaliation claims and appeals.  If you need help reporting a safety concern or making a retaliation claim, subscribe to our email list.
