United Airlines

Lawyers for United Airlines Inc. are denying a federal agency’s claims that the company created a hostile workplace for failing to adequately punish a commercial pilot who continually posted nude photos of a female flight attendant.

The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in August sued United in San Antonio federal district court, alleging the Chicago-based company “created, enabled and perpetuated” a hostile workplace and didn’t do enough to protect the flight attendant.

The pilot, Mark J. Uhlenbrock, was sentenced in September 2016 to 41 months in federal prison on a stalking charge. Uhlenbrock, who pleaded guilty that year, was released from custody last month. Prosecutors alleged Uhlenbrock, after his relationship with the United employee ended, posted nude photographs of her on the internet without her consent.
