Union Pacific Ordered to Compensate and Reinstate Fired Worker

Posted on Friday, March 15th, 2013 at 11:41 am    

Union Pacific has been ordered to pay $350,000 to, and reinstate, a worker who was allegedly fired after reporting a work-related injury. After reporting his injury in December of 2010, the employee was charged by Union Pacific with misuse of a company vehicle, a charge which eventually resulted in his firing. However, regulators are treating the employee as a whistleblower.

According to regulators, the injured worker had worked for Union Pacific for more than 30 years and was a “top performer” who received awards for his performance. The awarded $350,000 is intended to help cover the costs resulting from the employee’s injuries and lost wages.
