Employment laws include rules and regulations aimed at maintaining a safe workplace for workers and laborers. This can be particularly important in the coal mining industry since coal mine accidents can be especially dangerous and can easily lead to losses of multiple lives. However, sometimes it takes a disaster to actually occur before regulators are aware that actions are needed in order to update safety regulations. Unfortunately, this seems to have been the case in West Virginia following a coal mine accident which killed 29 miners.
