WAC 296-27-02113

Prohibition against discrimination.

(1) Employers are prohibited from discriminating against an employee for reporting a work-related fatality, injury or illness. Employees are also protected when they file a safety and health complaint, or ask for records which are required to be maintained by this section or exercise rights extended under WISHA.
(2) DOSH may not issue an injury and illness recordkeeping variance to a private sector employer. However, DOSH must recognize all recordkeeping variances issued by federal OSHA.
(3) DOSH may only grant an injury and illness recording and reporting variance to a state or local government employer within the state after obtaining approval to grant the variance from federal OSHA.
