Quick v. Frontier Airlines, et al., 1:15-cv-00765-REB-KMT (D. Colo.).
In 2015, Edward Quick, a former Frontier Airlines pilot who served in the U.S. Army Reserve from 2007 to 2014, filed a lawsuit alleging that Frontier Airlines did not properly reemploy him when he completed his military service in 2014 in violation of the Uniformed Services Employment and Reemployment Rights Act’s (USERRA).
USERRA, 38 U.S.C. 4301 et seq., is the federal law that prohibits discrimination based on military service or status, guarantees that servicemembers can take military leave from their civilian jobs, and requires employers to reemploy servicemembers when they finish their military service. The law also mandates that employees receive pension credit or contributions for periods of military service.
In September 2016, Quick moved for summary judgment on this USERRA reemployment and pension claims.
In October 2016, Quick and Frontier Airlines entered into a Settlement of Quick’s lawsuit.
