Labor and Employment partner Mark Hanley was quoted in Westlaw Journal Aviation regarding the 11th Circuit's ruling over Miami-Dade County's living-wage law and how it applies to Amerijet International Inc. cargo handlers.
The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that Amerijet International did not prove the federal Airline Deregulation Act preempted the living-wage ordinance for the cargo-handling services it performed for other airlines.
“While it is a very well-reasoned decision, the presumption of federal preemption in the airline industry is very strong and therefore the decision could have gone the other way,” said Hanley.
