Corey's law states that all delivery employers shall provide delivery employees with some type of but not limited to any specific type of equipment and/or devices that would allow them immediate contact with their store or local police in case of any dangerous situations they encounter while on the job. Delivery employees could have tracking devices in their vehicle, or a noise alarm for their delivery vehicle, and the right to decline a delivery assignment due to concern for their own safety. Employers should not allow a driver to make a delivery without a cell phone or some type of two way radio.
PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT THEASE ARE SUGGESTION
and not the law
Delivery employees may decline the installation of any devices required but it must be in writing and the delivery employer must retain copies. Absence of a written declination shall be conclusive proof that the delivery employee wanted the protection of the devices offered.
Delivery employers, or their representatives, shall meet a minimum of twice a year with local police officials to determine if any areas of the locality they serve are high crime areas that present potential risks to their delivery employees and shall communicate that information to their delivery employees in a timely manner.
The first violation of this law shall be punishable by a fine of not less than five hundred dollars and no more than five thousand dollars. For each successive violation by the same delivery employer, the minimum and maximum penalties shall be double those of the previous violation.
This section shall be known as Corey’s Law in memory of Corey Lind, who was murdered while fulfilling his duties as a delivery employee.
