The U.S. Department of Labor has ordered Union Pacific Railroad Co., headquartered in Omaha, to pay a total of $400,000 in punitive damages, $90,315 in compensatory damages, $34,900 in attorney fees and more than $90,000 in back wages to three employees. Separate investigations by the Kansas City, Mo., and San Francisco, Calif., offices of the department’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) determined that the company violated the whistleblower protection provisions of the Federal Railroad Safety Act (FSRA) by terminating two employees and suspending one in retaliation for reporting workplace safety concerns and a work-related injury.
