OSHA finds for whistleblowerA corporate officer fired because he refused to manipulate figures will be reinstated and get $500,000 in back pay and costs after his former employer was found by OSHA to be in violation of the whistleblower protection act.

According to the agency’s investigation, the employee was terminated from Bond Laboratories, a health supplement manufacturer then based in Solano Beach, CA, because he repeatedly objected to the company’s manipulation of sales figures in order to misrepresent the company’s value to potential investors. Former Bond CEO Scott Landow was also named in the citation.

Bond Laboratories is now based in Omaha, Neb.
