Johnson & Bell Shareholder, Joseph F. Spitzzeri, secured the dismissal of a whistleblower case against his client, a multinational retail company.  The complaint was filed with the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) by a former employee, who alleged that he was terminated for raising concerns to management about the failure to follow company protocol and federal regulations relevant to the company’s business.  Mr. Spitzzeri asserted that his client terminated the former employee for making an inappropriate comment regarding a coworker’s sexual orientation, which is in violation of the company’s Equal Employment Opportunity policy.  After its investigation, OSHA dismissed the complaint after finding no reasonable cause to believe a violation existed of the Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act and other federal regulations and statutes.
