In Brief

An administrative judge confirmed jurisdiction over the complaint of a technician based in France and determined that AIR21 applied extraterritorially to his retaliation claim.

Summary of Filed Complaint

TELG client Jose Dos Santos alleged he was retaliated against for reporting his supervisor for falsifying safety clearance documents. After making these disclosures to Delta and the FAA, he was subjected to a hostile work environment and denied numerous applications for promotion.

What Happened in Court

Dos Santos was a Paris-based aircraft technician for Delta Airlines when he was retaliated against for having disclosed safety violations by his supervisor to Delta and to the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”). Dos Santos was concerned that his supervisor falsified safety clearance documents. After OSHA dismissed the complaint, Dos Santos appealed to the OALJ where the ALJ, on Delta’s motion to dismiss, determined that AIR21 did have extraterritorial application to Dos Santos’s claims.
