Gulfstream Airlines Unfairly Fired Employee for Reporting Safety Concern, Jury Rules
A former Gulfstream International Airlines pilot won his whistleblower lawsuit today after a jury decided he had been unfairly fired for complaining about a fellow pilot flying a 19-seater with his knees.
The jury spent about two days deliberating, but in the end, they ruled in favor of former pilot Patrick Hart, saying that he was wrongfully terminated by Gulfstream International Airlines.
The past few years have been tough, Hart said, but he's glad there's now a
precedent future whistleblowers can point to when considering whether to complain about an unsafe or unethical practice.
