Do You Need a Trucking Whistleblower Lawyer?
- Have you faced retaliation by your employer after reporting a trucking safety violation?
- Were you harassed or blacklisted because you refused to drive in unsafe conditions?
- Is your livelihood on the line because you did the right thing and spoke out?
The Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) is a federal law that forbids retaliation against whistleblowers who report safety violations in the trucking industry. Under STAA, employers cannot punish employees who try to stop such violations, or who refuse to operate commercial vehicles unsafely. STAA provides damages for any illegal harm suffered by a good-faith whistleblower. If you were fired illegally, STAA may help you to get your job back.
