The Federal Rail Safety Act (FRSA)

The FRSA is a powerful tool that protects workers who engage in certain protected activities, including reporting a personal injury, reporting a hazardous safety condition, following your doctor’s orders or treatment plan, and other activities. The statue provides for damages to make the employee “whole,” including expunging the discipline, back pay, restoration of seniority and benefits, mental distress, punitive damages up to $250,000, and attorney fees.

The worker must file an FRSA complaint within 180 days of the adverse action of the carrier. Complaints are filed with a U.S. Department of Labor Regional Office of Whistleblower Protection.
