DOL Orders Trucking Company to Reinstate Whistleblower, Awards Back Pay and $125,000 in Punitive Damages

The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL) ordered Zurla Trucking of Fort Meyers, Florida to reinstate a truck driver who was terminated for refusing to drive unsafe trucks.  DOL also ordered the company to pay back pay plus interest, compensatory damages, and $125,000 in punitive damages, and required the company to delete “any adverse references related to the discharge from the company’s personnel file.”

The Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) protects bus drivers, truckers, and other employees who blow the whistle about the unsafe operation of commercial motor vehicles.  To learn more about The Employment Law Group® law firm’s Commercial Motor Carrier Whistleblower Practice, click here.
