La. Admin. Code tit. 33, § XV-1016 - Requests by Workers for Inspections

Current through Register Vol. 48, No. 3, March 20, 2022

A. Any worker or representative of workers believing that a violation of the act, LAC 33:XV, or license conditions exists or has occurred in work under a license or registration with regard to radiological working conditions in which the worker is engaged may request an inspection by giving notice of the alleged violation to the Office of Environmental Compliance. Any such notice shall be in writing, shall set forth the specific grounds for the notice, and shall be signed by the worker or representative of the workers. A copy shall be provided to the licensee or registrant by the department no later than at the time of inspection except that, upon the request of the worker giving such notice, such worker's name and the names of individuals referred to therein shall not appear in such copy or on any record published, released, or made available by the department, except for good cause shown.
B. If, upon receipt of such notice, the department determines that the complaint meets the requirements set forth in LAC 33:XV.1016.A and that there are reasonable grounds to believe that the alleged violation exists or has occurred, the department shall cause an inspection to be made as soon as practicable, to determine if such alleged violation exists or has occurred. Inspections performed pursuant to this Section need not be limited to matters referred to in the complaint.
C. No licensee or registrant shall discharge or in any manner discriminate against any worker because such worker has filed any complaint or instituted or caused to be instituted any proceeding under LAC 33:XV or has testified or is about to testify in any such proceeding or because of the exercise by such worker on behalf of such worker or others of any option afforded by this Chapter, or any applicable state or federal law or regulation.
