- Holwell Shuster & Goldberg and ACLU File Discrimination Charges Against Frontier Airlines on Behalf of Female Pilots
Holwell Shuster & Goldberg, along with the American Civil Liberties Union and the ACLU of Colorado, filed discrimination charges with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on behalf of four female commercial airline pilots at Frontier Airlines who claim that the company’s policies discriminate against women because they fail to provide accommodations related to pregnancy and breast-feeding. The pilots, who have collectively worked for Frontier for 35 years, assert that despite their dedication to their jobs, the airline’s failure to accommodate their pumping needs made it extremely difficult for them to continue breast-feeding their babies once they returned to work. This litigation is ongoing.
