News reports have surfaced against LYNX Services, a wholly owned subsidiary of Solera Holdings, Inc., provider of auto glass claim services.

Twenty-two employees reportedly filed an Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) complaint against LYNX Services for not allowing them to take shelter during a tornado that took place on March 14, according to the local news outlet in Paducah, Ky., WPSD.

Representatives from LYNX and Solera have not yet returned AGRR’s requests for comment on this story, nor have our calls to OSHA been returned as of press time.

OSHA does offer a plan for workplace emergencies and evacuations that employers may follow on its website. One of the items that falls under the classification of a workplace emergency is weather events including tornadoes. The OSHA document advises employers to develop a plan and then educate employees about the type of emergencies that may occur and to train them in the proper course of action. OSHA also has guidelines for employees to follow when filing a complaint against an employer.
