WolrdWide Jet Charter (NJ/USA) Ordered to Reinstate Pilot in AIR21 Action

Not really sure if I should post it here or in "Terms and Endearment". The Mods will decide. (At least, I tried a few keywords, but couldn't find a corresponding thread. )

Anyway, that's the point:

OSHA (the U.S. Occupational Health & Safety Agency) has ordered Worldwide Jet Charter LLC to reinstate a pilot after a whistleblower investigation determined the Millville, N.J.-based air carrier violated the pilot's rights when he was fired for reporting alleged violations of Federal Aviation Administration regulations related to a flight taken to Millville Airport.

The pilot filed a complaint with OSHA alleging retaliation under the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century, the aviation industry whistleblower law known as AIR21. An investigation by OSHA's New York Regional Office found merit to the pilot's complaint. OSHA does not release the name of complainants in whistleblower cases.

"Pilots and other workers of air carriers have the legal right to report violations of federal aviation regulations," said Robert Kulick, OSHA’s regional administrator in New York. "Air carriers that retaliate against employees for exercising their rights under AIR21 will be held accountable."
