In this installment of our Safety Perspectives From the Dallas Region podcast series, John Surma (shareholder, Houston) and Frank Davis (shareholder, Dallas) discuss S. 4260, the Warehouse Worker Protection Act (WWPA), which was recently introduced in the U.S. Senate. The WWPA would limit production requirements for warehouse workers and the disciplinary measures that employers may impose for failures to meet those limits. Frank and John review which industries would be covered by the WWPA, the proposed creation of a Fairness and Transparency Office within the Department of Labor’s Wage and Hour Division, and the steep fines employers would face for failure to comply.
