Does the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) have to release the name of an employee who made an OSHA complaint?

No. This is up to the complaining employee. To better protect the complaining employee, OSHA will give the employer a copy of an employee complaint that led to an inspection, but will first remove the employee's name unless the employee requests that it be given to the employer.
