Are non-U.S. residents and third-country nationals covered under the Defense Base Act (DBA)?
The Defense Base Act covers non US residents and third country nationals that are injured overseas while working at our Defense Base Act contract. Individuals range from Macedonia, to Peru, to Chile, or it can even be from Afghanistan and Iraq. They’re either local hires or third country nationals.
Their benefits are sometimes different than those of United States citizens and residents, but they are covered under the Defense Base Act.
