A general contracting company has been convicted of several charges, including second degree manslaughter, criminally negligent homicide, and reckless endangerment. On May 6th, 2015 one of the contractor’s employees was killed when a 14 foot trench collapsed on him.

According to prosecutors the victim had previously warned his employers that the site was dangerous, however his concerns were disregarded. Employers have a duty to provide employees with a safe work environment. Sadly, the victim did the right thing by reporting the danger, but the negligence of his employers resulted in a completely preventable tragedy.
