Colorado Bus Driver Wins Case Against Former Company
A tour bus driver won his case against his former company after he was fired for refusing to drive an unsafe bus. According to 9 news, Banjo Billy's Bus Tours (now under new ownership), was found guilty of retaliating against an employee for firing John Georgis, after he refused to drive a bus that was deemed unsafe. Under the Surface Transportation Assistance Act, employees are protected if they "raise concerns" in regards to the safety of commercial vehicles. The former owners of Banjo Billy's Bus Tours, which provide guided tours of Denver and Boulder, must pay Georgis $11,000 in back wages, interest, and punitive damages.
