From trucking companies to airlines to automobile rentals, the transportation industry is a diverse sector with a wide range of specialized employment law needs. This sector of our economy is highly-regulated at the federal and state levels. Yet it is also more decentralized than other industries, making compliance with varying regulations especially challenging.
