The U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has cited five contractors for safety and health violations after three employees were killed and two others critically injured following an explosion onboard a towboat in Calvert City.
A Lexington man who served in the Personnel Cabinet during former Gov. Steve Beshear's administration has admitted to ethics violations that allege he raised political contributions at work on state time.
The Kentucky Labor Cabinet says it recouped more than $52,400 in unpaid wages for workers in the state last month.
Agency officials say last month's efforts brought the total amount recovered for the year to nearly $1.6 million.
