Ames, IA asked in Consumer Law for Iowa

Q: At work we have a bad roach infestation. Can I get in trouble for reporting them?

Last time I worked a coworker opened a box to find 5 roaches and they ran everywhere possibly even on the food that was going out. They refuse to bring in an exterminator and they only use roach traps. They say they do have an exterminator come but I fail to see why we have such an infestation if that is the case. This is just unacceptable and I wanna get something done about it. Our customers deserve better.
