While employees on land and at sea may have similar job responsibilities, the work performed at sea is inherently more dangerous. Labor laws that apply to workers on land are not suitable for their water-based counterparts. Hence, maritime law was formulated to offer enhanced protection and clearly defined rights for those working in ocean-based professions, recognizing the unique risks they face every day.
