Biography

Doug Hall concentrates his practice on representing employers in labor and employment matters with a specific focus on the airline industry and the Railway Labor Act.

Recent Experience

•In 2009, Doug represented a regional air carrier in litigation with respect to the carrier's decision to apply the flight attendant rest and duty regulations, rather than the pilot regulations, to its flight attendants. The litigation was settled in the company's favor, with an agreement to arbitrate the dispute. Doug represented the company at the arbitration as well, at which the company prevailed.
•In 2011-12, Doug oversaw a team of FordHarrison attorneys in assisting a major air carrier with an organizing election among its passenger service employees.
•In 2012, Doug represented an airline service provider in obtaining a favorable decision from the NMB with respect to the proper scope of the employer's system for representation purposes under the RLA.
•In 2011 and 2012, Doug represented a national airline with respect to petitions filed with the NMB to represent the carrier's pilots and flight attendants. In both cases, the carrier prevailed.
•In 2012, Doug represented two commonly-owned cargo/charter airlines with respect to petitions alleging that the carriers constituted a single transportation system for representation purposes. The carriers ultimately were held not to constitute a single transportation service.
•In 2012, Doug obtained an injunction prohibiting non-union employees of an airline service provider from carrying out a threatened strike that, if successful, could have shut down operations at the Seattle-Tacoma International Airport.
