As recently seen on the local news, a call center on Research is infested with bed bugs. Now they are sending workers home, without pay, when bedbugs are reported.

Anyone know the legal standing they may have on this? Employees are now afraid to report or acknowledge seeing ANYthing for fear of losing income or being terminated.

We have to flood OSHA phone lines. APAC corporate is telling them the problem has been resolved and they're taking their word for it. The county health department and the state health department says OSHA is the only agency who can come in and force them to do something because they are federal. So keep constantly calling there phone lines and going to there website sending emails. CONSTANTLY everybody have your family call, neighbors everybody because its only a matter of time before one of us takes it home to them and they take it to there homes, jobs, and schools. KEEP CALLING OSHA OR EMAILING THEM! www.osha.gov (go to how to file a complaint, click online) 1-800-321-6742

Remove beeners from the workplace since they seem to be the problem. Send them back south of the beenerborder permanently.
