There is nothing unsafe about having the overloads on the neutral side of a contractor as long as the overloads are in the same cabinet. Its unsafe to have controls wired on the neutral side in a remote location. If you can honestly short the jumper between the coil and the overloads to ground you probably have a much bigger problem.
