Longshore and Harbor Workers’ Compensation Act

The Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act was initially passed by the U. S. Congress in 1927. Prior to that time when a longshore or shipyard worker was injured the only recourse was to proceed with a traditional common law negligence action. Recognizing that this process was lengthy and often placed an unreasonable burden on the limited financial resources of injured longshore workers, the Congress passed the broad reaching remedial legislation now known as the Longshore and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act.
