MSHA goes after mine companies for unpaid penalties

The DOL has filed complaints in U.S. district courts against mine companies in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and New Hampshire. Acting on behalf of the MSHA, the DOL seeks to collect about $270,000 in unpaid civil penalties resulting from safety violations. The complaints also seek injunctions and cash performance bonds from each operator to guarantee that future fines will be paid.

The complaints involve American Industries, Inc. (Jewett City, Connecticut), R.J. Cincotta Co., Inc. (Waltham, Massachusetts), and Raymond Sand and Gravel (Raymond, New Hampshire).

“Over a period of several years, these employers either reneged on promises to pay these penalties or they failed to contest them and then chose to ignore them,” said DOL Regional Solicitor Michael Felsen. “The Department of Labor will use all the tools available, including litigation in federal court, to pursue these scofflaws.”
