Re: Senior FA sues DL for wrongful termination

You clearly don’t get it. As long as she passes recurrent she is qualified. Delta could ask her at anytime to redo her training if there were complaints about her work. You don’t work with her nor what has transpired.

They often honour your previous terms and conditions. She could well still be on a contract from any of her ...
