Appeals Court Sides William Lukov in Lawsuit against Schindler Elevator Corporation

Schindler Elevator Corporation announced that Citing California's strong protections for whistle-blowers, a federal appeals court has reinstated a lawsuit by a South Bay elevator mechanic who said he was fired for reporting dangerous conditions in an elevator at a Nordstrom department store. William Lukov said Schindler Elevator Corp. dismissed him in February 2010, three days after the company pulled him off its team of Nordstrom elevator inspectors at the retailer's request. Ten months earlier, Lukov had reported, to his supervisors and to state safety officials, that heat sensors for a Nordstrom elevator at the Westfield Valley Fair shopping center in San Jose were improperly located and posed a risk of electrocution to repair workers if overheating activated protective sprinklers. Schindler and Nordstrom both denied that the sensors were unsafe. Lukov's lawyer said state safety inspectors initially ordered Nordstrom to bring the elevator into compliance with state standards but later accepted the company's assurance that it had made the necessary changes. Lukov's suit claimed he was fired illegally for reporting unsafe conditions. U.S. District Judge Edward Davila dismissed the suit in 2012, saying the law does not protect employees of private companies for reports that are part of their regular job, a standard that has been applied by some federal judges in other states. But the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco announced that California provides more protection to workers.
