All of United’s workers may soon be out of a job unless the business turns around. But Joanne Plurad is suing United because it paid her for not working, instead of giving her work to do.
When she could no longer perform her job due to M.S., she was given other work. After five years, she was told the airline didn’t have any more work for her — but kept paying her. She’s suing because she said United should have found her a job.
