This is the landing point for a class action that has been filed by Mandalena Lewis against WestJet Airlines Ltd. (“WestJet”).

Mandalena brings this action on behalf of herself and a proposed class of plaintiffs being all present female flight attendants at WestJet and all former flight attendants who worked at WestJet within the applicable limitation periods.

The lawsuit alleges a systemic breach of contract by WestJet in failing to address sexual harassment and assault by pilots to the standards required by its policies and to instead attempt to suppress reporting, protect pilots and silence victims.

A copy of the Notice of Civil Claim is available here.
