Employees that are punished by their employers for attempting to ensure safe and healthful working conditions may sue for wrongful termination in violation of the public policies advanced by the health and safety laws. The federal law that requires health and safety in the workplace is the Occupational Health and Safety Act of 1970 ("OSHA"). In California, the Division of Occupational Safety and Health protects workers and the public from safety hazards by enforcing California's occupational and public safety laws and provides information and consultative assistance to employers, workers and the public about workplace and public safety matters.
