Dear Anonymous,

You can not sue your employer directly for a safety issue such as you describe.  However, if your employer is not providing you with safety equipment as required by state law, they may be in violation of the Indiana Occupational Safety and Health Act (IOSHA). Here is a link to the Indiana Department of Labor IDOL's website where you can file a complaint against your employer. 

 

Best,

Labor and Employment
Labor and employment attorneys can help both employers and workers prevent, address and resolve a variety of issues related to the employer-employee relationship. Small business owners and managers should consult with employment lawyers when crafting employment policies (including those related to hiring, affirmative action, compensation, medical leave and sexual harassment); negotiating employment contracts, non-compete agreements and severance agreements; and resolving employment-related personnel disputes. Workers should talk to a labor and employment law firm before signing any job-related contracts and for help addressing issues related to discrimination, harassment, Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accommodations and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA) requests.
