Workers continue to pay high price for exercising OHS rights, study Employer reprisals against workers attempting to exercise their health and safety rights remains a top concern according to a new, soon-to-be published study.

Employer reprisals against workers attempting to exercise their health and safety rights remains a top concern according to a new, soon-to-be published study.
 
Despite a few improvements to the complaints process some eight years ago, workers are still being fired illegally for exercising health and safety rights, rarely do they get their jobs back, and rarer still do employers suffer legal consequences.
 
"What we heard is a pretty strong indication the system designed to protect workers who advocate for safer, healthier work is broken,” says Andy King, McMaster University-based researcher and lead author of the study funded by a grant from the Prevention Branch of the Ontario Ministry of Labour (Ministry).
