how long is the statue of limitation on a citation no injuries a disgruntle former set a osha inspection then when osha showed up he had workers violate osha and company policy it has been four years since the violation took place and we have sent in abatement form but no response

Thank you for your question.

The fact that a citation has been issued means that the statute of limitations is no longer an issue in your case.

Did the company contest the citation at all, or did it agree with the citation and send in a notice that the company complied and abated the offending action?

the company contested the citation due to disgruntle former employee calling for an inspection and having workers violate policy when osha inspector showed up on location

Thank you for your response.

The OSH Act states that once a written contest to a citation is received, the Commissioner has a reasonable time to order a hearing. In your case, 4 years has passed and thus the Commission no longer has the right to bring any charges under the citation under your Due Process protections.
