Do You Need a Trucking Safety Whistleblower Lawyer?
- Are you a truck driver who has refused to drive in unsafe conditions?
- Have you suffered retaliation, harassment, or blacklisting after reporting a trucking safety violation?
- Is your livelihood on the line because you did the right thing and spoke out?
If you're a commercial trucker facing wrongful termination, the law is on your side.
The Surface Transportation Assistance Act (STAA) is a federal law that forbids retaliation against whistleblowers who report safety violations in the commercial trucking industry. Under STAA's whistleblower-protection provision, employers may be held liable if they punish employees who draw attention to such violations, or who refuse to operate their trucks unsafely. STAA provides damages for any illegal harm done to a good-faith whistleblower. If you're a commercial trucker who has suffered wrongful termination, STAA may help you to get your job back.
