Aviation body accused of forcing out staff who raised safety fears
Civil Aviation Authority denies constructive dismissal at employment tribunal
Two senior flight operations inspectors have claimed they were forced out of the Civil Aviation Authority after raising concerns that job cuts had put passengers at risk.
John Baker and Terry Neale, who served with the air safety regulator for a total of 40 years, told an employment tribunal that CAA managers changed their working conditions and downgraded their performance ratings after they expressed concerns to the board about dwindling numbers of qualified staff.
