An employee’s lawsuit against NJ Transit resulting from the 2008 electrocution of another worker has been settled.

Flagman conductor Anthony Araujo was working in Newark when he witnessed the worker being electrocuted by a live wire.

According to an Associated Press report on NBC 10 Philadelphia, Araujo said NJ Transit suspended him without pay for reporting the accident and seeking counseling after witnessing it. Araujo was seeking out the agency’s Employee Assistance Program, according to court documents.

NJ.com reported that Araujo filed a compliant with OSHA and then a lawsuit, saying that NJ Transit filed disciplinary charges against him for taking a day off after he witnessed the employee’s electrocution. The Employee Assistance Program evaluator recommended the day off for Araujo, saying that he was unable to safely work.
