UPS Ordered to Pay $111,000 for Retaliating Against Whistleblowing Truck Driver

On May 26, 2010, the Department of Labor ordered UPS to pay one of its drivers $111,008 in back wages, benefits, compensatory damages, punitive damages, and attorney’s fees for violations of the whistleblower provision of the Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA).  According to OSHA, UPS terminated the driver for refusing to drive a truck and trailer with inoperable lights.  The amount awarded includes $100,000 in punitive damages.

The STAA protects bus drivers, truckers, 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.
