United Airlines flight attendant sues for right to wear clogs
A lawsuit filed Nov. 1 in federal court claims a United Airlines flight attendant was discriminated against because she wore medical-necessary shoes to work.
Edie Hall worked for Continental Airlines, which later merged with United Airlines, for a total of 32 years.
“It’s very, very frustrating for me,” Hall said. “I have pain every day, but I just push through it.”
Hall says she had surgery on her right foot in 2013 in which a plate and several screws were implanted in her foot. Her doctor prescribed she wear Dansko XP Pro clogs because she is unable to arch her foot.
Hall claims she was allowed to wear the clogs on the plane while it was in service, but was told she could not wear the shoes while traveling to and from her car and through the terminals to planes because it was a violation of United’s dress code.
