Employment Law Issues Take Flight In California Supreme Court

by | Jun 29, 2020 | Employment Law, Legal News |

In late June, the California Supreme Court clarified California wage and hour issues related to the application of wage and hour laws for flight attendants working primarily outside of California’s territorial jurisdiction.

In the three companion cases (Oman v. Delta Air Lines, Inc., Ward v. United Airlines, Inc., and Vidrio v. United Airlines, Inc.), the California Supreme Court held that in order for flight attendants to avail themselves of the wage statement laws in California, the flight attendants need to have their base of work operations in California. The decision will have employment law implications beyond the airline industry, which is why you should consult with an California employment lawyer to know your rights and responsibilities.
