Multi-party sex discrimination against US airline
05 September 2009
We acted in a multi-party action
for a group of flight attendants
who were suspended without pay after refusing on their doctor's advice to work on long-distance flights while pregnant.
Their employer was a US airline
. The airline attempted to rely on the protection afforded by US law, but the Tribunal took the view
that the employment relationship as a whole was much more closely connected to Britain and the flight attendants had been the victims of unlawful sex discrimination.
