Palm Beach Gardens, FLA. – Clark Fountain’s attorney, Shana P. Nogues, has been retained to represent a female pilot in a sexual harassment and gender discrimination claim against a major airline. The pilot, whose identity will remain confidential, alleges that she experienced harassment and discrimination during her training, forcing her to resign from the airline.

The female pilot claims that several male flight instructors subjected her to inappropriate sexual comments and actions during her training. Despite her attempts to report the incidents, the airline’s management failed to address the situation appropriately, leading her to lose faith in the company and resign from her position.

As a result, Shana P. Nogues has filed a complaint with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) on behalf of the female pilot, citing Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. This federal law prohibits employers from discriminating against employees based on race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.

The female pilot’s experience highlights the prevalence of sexual harassment and gender discrimination within the airline industry. Many women who work in the sector have been told to “bite their tongue” and accept such behavior, perpetuating a harmful and hostile work environment.

Attorney Shana P. Nogues stated, “It is deeply troubling that this type of behavior persists in the workplace, particularly in an industry that should prioritize safety and professionalism above all else. Our client has shown immense courage in coming forward with her experiences, and we will work tirelessly to ensure that her rights are upheld and that she receives the justice she deserves.”
