Airline Flight Attendants’ Physical Requirements Often Require “Full Duty Work” Releases

Posted by:

marketing the remaining physical abilities, even outside the employer’s field, many airline employees end up leaving the industry.

Virginia law does not require the airlines or airport to offer a disabled employee light duty or part-time work. However, the law of the Commonwealth DOES require the injured airline or airport worker to show proof of regular efforts to find employment within their post-injury restrictions or face losing their workers compensation benefits. This is one area of the law where engaging an experienced workers compensation and injury lawyer is critical. If you or someone you know or care for was working as a flight attendant or aircraft crew, and they have been injured as the result of an airport terminal, airplane or other air travel related accident and there are questions about what laws apply, e-mail or call us at ABRAMS LANDAU, Ltd.
