Law360: American Airlines Nabs Win In Pilot’s Military Benefits Fight

1月 10, 2020

O’Melveny represented American Airlines in its win against a proposed class of its current and former pilots who accused American Airlines of illegally withholding seniority-based benefits to employees on military leave, this article reported. US District Judge Mark Pittman ruled that the law does not apply here, finding the benefits at issue, sick and vacation-time accruals and operations-based bonuses, are not seniority-based and are therefore not protected by the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act, Law360 noted.
