Women Fired for Speaking Native Language

August 27th, 2018

Philadelphia wrongful termination lawyers vigorously fight for your rights against discrimination.Four Delta Airlines employees are fighting back after claiming they were wrongfully terminated. The employees, who had a combined 50 years of service as desk and gate agents for the airline, claim they were fired for speaking Korean, their native language, and for reporting sexual harassment at work. The lawsuit alleges race and national origin discrimination and retaliation.

The Korean-born victims, three of whom are now American citizens, routinely dealt with Korean-speaking passengers who regularly flew to and from South Korea. They believed they provided a great service for the airline in this capacity.

Although the four victims felt their language capabilities were the primary reason they were hired, they believe it was also the reason they were eventually fired as they were told to limit their Korean-language interactions after complaints were received by non-Korean-speaking agents. They claim that other foreign language-speaking agents were not terminated.

In addition, the four women claim to have been repeatedly harassed by the same individual. They say that despite trying to avoid the harasser, they dealt with touching and other inappropriate behavior daily. After they complained, they were suspended and then terminated, allegedly for giving free upgrades, which they say is a common practice where no other employees were terminated.
