On July 23, 1992, the North Carolina General Assembly ratified a law which will protect employees against discrimination and retaliatory action for particular job related activities. The law became effective on October 1, 1992 and applies to those accused of .violating it on or after that date. This article analyzes that law as it applies to the Occupational Safety and Health Act of North Carolina. The law appears in its entirety as an appendix in this paper.
