Bartenders, Servers, Deck Hands, Captains, Shore Side Mechanics And The Like: Jones Act Seaman
Do you work for Hornblower Cruises, San Diego Harbor Excursions, Blue and Gold Fleet, Red and White Fleet, Spirit Cruises, whale watching boats or another harbor cruise company?
Are you a bartender, server, waiter, waitress, bar back, deck hand, engineer, Captain, cook, shore side mechanic, and the like?
If you regularly work aboard a Hornblower Cruises, San Diego Harbor Excursions, Blue and Gold Fleet, Red and White Fleet, Spirit Cruises, whale watching boats or another harbor cruise company vessel you are most likely entitled to Jones Act rights and remedies. Know this from the start: Jones Act Seaman rights and remedies are the most powerful of any worker in America.
Unlike most workers’ you can sue your employer. If you get hurt while working for a land based employer - such as manufacturer, retailer or restaurant, then you are only entitled to California workers’ compensation benefits. California has some - if the THE - lowest workers’ comp benefits of any State. However, if you are a Seaman, then you are entitled to Jones Act Seaman benefits.
You don't have to go to sea in order to get powerful Jones Act benefits
Under the Jones Act and Maritime Law, there is no requirement for a Seaman to actually "go to sea" in order to recover powerful Jones Act rights and remedies. All you need to do is work on a vessel that is navigable waters - such as San Diego Harbor, San Francisco Harbor, Los Angeles Harbor, Newport Harbor and the like.
