Federal Preemptive Laws

  • The Railroad Unemployment Insurance Act (45 USCS 351) expressly governs unemployment compensation for workers in the railroad industry.
  • The Trade Act (19 USCS 2271) provides special payments to workers unemployed or facing unemployment as a result of imported goods and products that compete in the domestic market with goods or products produced by the workers’ employers. Special federal rules also apply for nonprofit organizations and governmental entities.
