Do You Need a Public Transit Safety Whistleblower Lawyer?
- Are you a transit worker who's being fired after raising safety issues?
- Have you been the victim of unfair retaliation because you refused to work in dangerous conditions on public transit?
- Is your career now in jeopardy, even though you stood up for the public's safety?
If you face wrongful termination because you reported a public transportation safety concern, the law is on your side.
In 2007 President George W. Bush signed the 9/11 Act, which included the National Transit Systems Security Act of 2007 (NTSSA). The NTSSA enhances transit security by encouraging public transportation employees to raise safety concerns without fear of retaliation. Under the NTSSA's whistleblower-protection provision, transit systems cannot punish workers who report danger or refuse to work in an unsafe environment. The NTSSA provides damages for any illegal harm suffered by a good-faith whistleblower. If you are a transit worker who was wrongfully dismissed, the NTSSA may help to get your job back.
