Free to Fly Class Action Lawsuit
Free to Fly Canada, through retained counsel Umar Sheikh of Sheikh Law, has filed a Class Action lawsuit against the Canadian government on behalf of aviation employees harmed as a result of the vaccination mandates.
Plaintiffs Greg Hill, Brent Warren, and Tanya Lewis are representative of a proposed class of those subjected to tortuous harm by Transport Canada’s Interim Order Respecting Certain Requirements for Civil Aviation Due to COVID-19, No. 43. This Order mandated vaccination for those within the civil aviation community in 2021. In so doing, it induced employers to violate contractual agreements for thousands of Canadian employees, violated rights guaranteed by the Charter, and interfered with free and fair collective bargaining. This is the first time a case of this type has been brought in Canadian Courts and we are proud to help chart this course.
The class action is open to unvaccinated employees adversely affected by Transport Canada’s Interim Order, No. 43. This could be reflected through termination of employment, coerced early retirement, or suspension. These suspensions were often called a leave of absence by employers, but given their involuntary nature were not thus, by definition. We have been failed by our government, unions, and employers, and this proceeding is a means to fight back.
