OSHA Whistleblower Case


Bowling Center Company Settles Whistleblower Allegations Lucky Strike Entertainment Will Pay Former Employee $40,000 in Back Wages CHICAGO, IL – A mechanic who alleged he was terminated after voicing concerns about unsafe working conditions at a bowling center in Lombard will receive a total of $40,000 in back wages as part of a consent judgment signed by the employer with the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). “The settlement of this case represents a true win for an employee who was willing to risk his job to ensure workplace safety for himself and his co-workers,” said OSHA Chicago Region Administrator Kenneth Nishiyama Atha. “Commitment to workplace safety should be commended – not punished.” The agreement between OSHA and Lucky Strike Entertainment LLC, resolves a lawsuit filed under the anti-retaliation provision of the Occupational Safety and Health Act. The lawsuit alleged the mechanic was terminated in June 2015 after filing complaints of unsafe working conditions with OSHA.
