Transportation

Most laws with labor provisions regulating the transportation industry are administered by agencies outside the Department of Labor.

However, longshoring and maritime industry safety and health standards are issued and enforced by OSHA.

The Longshoring and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act (LHWCA), requires employers to assure that workers’ compensation is funded and available to eligible employees.

In addition, the rights of employees in the mass transit industry are protected when federal funds are used to acquire, improve, or operate a transit system.

Under the Federal Transit law, the Department of Labor is responsible for approving employee protection arrangements before the department of Transportation can release funds to grantees.
