(AP) The Occupational Safety and Health Administration is ordering MGM Resorts International to rehire a whistleblower and pay $325,000 in restitution.


OSHA says the MGM condominium subsidiary the Signature at MGM Grand fired the employee for speaking up about co-workers allegedly violating Securities and Exchange Commission regulations.


The employee told a supervisor that colleagues were forecasting to potential buyers, telling them about expected revenue and occupancy rates, even though they were not licensed to do so.


MGM has the option of appealing the decision, but will still need to immediately offer to rehire the employee and make the $325,000 payment.


Ken Atha, OSHA administrator in San Francisco, said on Thursday that the decision reaffirms the right of employees to report SEC violations. MGM did not immediately offer comment.
