PITTSBURGH (AP) - A Pittsburgh-area company that operates an industrial park and intermodal terminal has agreed to pay $100,000 to settle a whistleblower suit filed by the federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

OSHA sued last year on behalf of former employee Andrew Dorsey.

Dorsey claimed he was suspended for allegedly damaging a skid loader while plowing snow, so he complained to OSHA about workplace safety at McKees Rocks Industrial Enterprises. That prompted an OSHA inspection and Dorsey was fired a week later.

OSHA then sued the company and its president, James Lind.

An attorney for Lind and the industrial company did not immediately return a call seeking comment after the settlement was filed in federal court on Monday.

The company must also remove disciplinary actions from Dorsey’s file and give him a neutral reference for future jobs.
