The traumatized sexually harassed pilot got a settlement of 20 years at Airbus CA rate or around $3.2 million.
Well there you go ......finally got my question answered! As suspected....wow!

All I can say is...holy shit. Far from my basic ethical standards, but hey, if you can take a company to the cleaners for 3.2 million, as twisted as it is, it now makes a whole lot more sense, but not in a good way, than dumping an entire career just because of a number on a flight plan that likely was an OK number in the first place.

Whoever said crime does not pay is full of it, in a manner of speaking. I'm too naive to understand why people do this kind of thing, and how they get away with it.

Been following this thread with some interest and unlike you I am not an airline pilot so you can obviously speak with authority on this. Having said that such situations happen in all industry work places and I did see similar during my Service provider(NC) time. For the most part(not all mind you) with plaintiffs of this nature there is usually some history preceding in interactions with other employees notably one of authority. If I read commentary correctly in this particular case the FO in question was making operation changes by him/herself without consulting superiors ie the designated aircraft captain which a “heated discussion followed”. My point is corporations seeing this situation with a problem employee, anticipating future issues will accept payout to avoid having to deal with this employee again because it WILL happen. The money is question seems plenty but to a major airline tis nothing to put this problem behind them.

Like the situation I referred to at NC, Air Canada like NC made it plain that this employee/pilot is not the individual they want around on their property.

Got it, quite understandable and loud and clear.

I have no way to validate the figure, but if it is the case, 3.2 million???? Not an expert in the subject, but after a total of 40 or so years in the workforce (I'm counting summer and school jobs), it rarely but at odd times happens that a bad fit needs to be dealt with. To put it bluntly, their asses were handed to them and were kicked out the door with nothing else.

Hence my astonishment at the alleged payout. Seems like some sort of double standard is operating here. Worked for one large and fairly well known place that reduced their workforce by 1500 during the 2008-2009 economic crisis which blindsided many, and I was one of them. They gave additional compensation to everyone but you can imagine that it was not all that much and nowhere near the above quoted figure.

It is what it is I guess.

I'd take settlement numbers on the internet with a grain of salt. There were similar rumours floating around my airlines and it turned out the case was still on going ie no settlement.
