Your Rights Under Maritime Law
Today’s maritime workers participate in one of the nation's oldest, proudest industries. For as long as men and women have been working aboard ships, in harbors, and on the docks, there has been a long history of “admiralty laws”, or maritime laws to regulate and safeguard that work. Many of our founding fathers were maritime lawyers, and some of our nation’s founding documents were responses to the maritime laws of the day.
