Recently, the U.S. department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration has ordered the Union Pacific Railroad Co., headquartered in Omaha, Nebraska, to immediately reinstate an employee to his former position with the same pay and benefits, and to pay the employee more than $200,000, representing back wages, compensatory damages, attorney’s fees and punitive damages.
