Man gets $100,000 in whistleblower lawsuit against McKees Rocks firm

Monday, July 7, 2014, 11:48 a.m.
 

A McKees Rocks shipping and storage company has agreed to pay a former worker $100,000 to settle a federal complaint that the worker was fired for reporting safety violations.

The Labor Department in September said that James T. Lind, CEO of McKees Rocks Industrial Enterprises Inc., figured out which of his 52 employees filed the complaint that led to a Feb. 22, 2012, investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

The agency sued the company on behalf of Andrew Dorsey.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Mitchell on Monday approved a consent order requiring the company to make the payments, remove all disciplinary actions from Dorsey's record and give him a neutral recommendation to any prospective employer.

Lind and his attorney couldn't be reached for comment.
