Liability Waivers


My employer is requiring me to sign a liability waiver upon returning to work. Does this prevent me from filing a complaint about safety, health, or retaliation?https://www.osha.gov/SLTC/covid-19/covid-19-faq.html#collapse50

Nothing in a liability waiver prevents or precludes an employee's right to file a complaint under the Occupational Safety and Health Act. The worker continues to have the right to file a safety or health complaint under section 8(f) and/or a retaliation complaint under section 11(c), regardless of any language contained in the waiver.
