A group of Delta Airlines employees say uniforms provided by Lands End made them sick and they’re taking the company to court.
The lawsuit by more than 500 Delta flight attendants and ground workers claims the uniforms pose “ongoing, unreasonable risk of physical harm” like skin rashes, headaches, fatigue and other problems.
The uniforms came out in 2016 and employees have been required to wear them since May 2018.
Delta said it tested the uniforms and believes all the mandatory components of the uniform are safe.
The suit claims employee tests found unacceptably high levels of chemicals and heavy metals including formaldehyde and mercury.
Lands End did not respond to a request for comment.
Delta was not named as a defendant in the lawsuit.
