Florida Defense Base Act Attorney
About the Defense Base Act
The United States government, as a way to provide coverage and insurance
for any military personnel stationed overseas, enacted the Defense Base
Act (DBA) back in 1941. While originally passed to only protect military
personnel, the Act now covers any individual working outside the United
States who has been contracted or is affiliated with the government in
any way, military or otherwise. Under the DBA, contractors and other employers
bear the responsibility for obtaining DBA insurance for every qualifying
employee. Failure to provide this insurance can result in stiff penalties
and the possibility that the government contract will be lost.
Depending on the situation, contractors and out of country employers may
also receive additional punishments, which can seriously threaten the
business and livelihood of the accused individual or organization. In
recent years the importance of Defense Base Act insurance has taken on
a new life due to exceedingly dangerous working conditions in the Middle
East and other volatile countries. If you stand accused of a Defense Base
Act violation, you should contact a
Florida employment defense attorney without delay.
