Shegerian & Associates: Boeing Crash Draws Similarities To Whistleblower Cases

NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, March 20, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Following the deadly Ethiopian Airlines crash, Boeing and its 737 Max jets have been under scrutiny along with any ignored employee complaints.

According to new reports, engineers involved in evaluations of the plane, a Boeing 737 Max 8, knew of flaws in the original report that was used to certify the model before it flew. Engineers spoke with The Seattle Times on the condition of anonymity about the safety of the plane’s control system.

Engineers told the newspaper that, the safety analysis allegedly “understated the power of the new flight control system, which was designed to swivel the horizontal tail to push the nose of the plane down to avert a stall.”  Additionally, these engineers shared that the safety analysis report claimed the system “failed to account for” the fact it would reset whenever a pilot intervened.

In a statement issued Monday, March 18th, the Federal Aviation Authority claimed “We have no reports from whistleblowers [or] any other sources pertaining to FAA technical personnel being pressured to speed up certification of the Boeing 737 MAX.”

Carney Shegerian, the founder of Los Angeles-based employee rights law firm, Shegerian & Associates, has weighed in on the situation.

“The issue of whistleblowers being silenced is so dangerous, especially when an unsafe work environment puts numerous other people at risk,” Shegerian says. “The latest development at Boeing highlight the need for workplaces where employees are free to speak up about concerns.”
