LAS VEGAS (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.

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.
