LIAT loses appeal in $1.55mn unfair dismissal case

A judge in the Superior Court of the United States Virgin Islands has ordered LIAT (LI, Antigua) to pay USD1.55 million in damages that had been awarded to a former employee, dismissing an appeal by the cash-strapped pan-Caribbean carrier.

William Cherubin took the airline to court in February claiming he had been dismissed because of his age, the Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) reported.

LIAT had allegedly fired him without notice in June 2015 citing infringements of company policy, but Cherubin successfully argued in court that his age, 70 at the time of the dismissal, was the dominant factor.

In 2011, LIAT had offered all employees aged over 62 a retirement package in exchange for voluntary resignations, but Cherubin had turned down the offer.

Justice Douglas A Brady said in his May 13 ruling that the Antigua-based airline was in violation of the Virgin Islands Civil Rights Act and “unlawfully discriminated against him by discharging him from employment because of his age and awarded damages for lost wages, and mental pain and suffering.”
