Whistleblowers and the National Transit Systems Security Act

When employees, contractors or subcontractors of a public transportation agency in New York or any other state decide to report unlawful action by their employer, they are protected by provisions of the National Transit Systems Security Act, or NTSSA. This law states that whistleblowers shall be protected from discrimination, demotion, firing or other punishments when they perform this action. Employees are also protected if they refuse to comply with unlawful orders or decide to cooperate with a legal investigation.

New Jersey law could help injured workers

Many New York City workers who live in New Jersey commute to their jobs through public transportation. However, they may not know that if a transportation worker gets hurt, it may be difficult for that person to file a lawsuit against his or her employer. This is because NJ Transit has claimed that it had sovereign immunity because it was a government entity and thus it cannot be sued under the 1908 Federal Employers Liability Act.

Proving liability in a FELA claim after an accident

Railroad workers across Connecticut and the U.S. are exposed to continual hazards and dangers every day. When you suffer a serious injury at work, the Federal Employers Liability Act (FELA) provides you with the opportunity to collect compensation while you recover. However, the process to pursue this compensation can become complicated.
