Two fired Alaska Airlines flight attendants who said they were let go after they questioned the company’s support of the Equality Act have filed a complaint against the airline alleging discrimination.

Represented by First Liberty, a law firm that defends religious liberties, the charge was filed in the Seattle field office of the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission on August 18 on behalf of the former flight attendants.

The federal complaint alleges that the company unfairly retaliated against employees Lacey Smith and another flight attendant, who wished to remain anonymous, after they questioned the airlines’ backing of the passage of the Equality Act.
