Federal Court allows Nufam president's appeal in unlawful dismissal suit

PUTRAJAYA: The Federal Court here on Thursday (Jan 20) upheld a High Court’s decision which ruled that the National Union of Flight Attendants Malaysia ( Nufam ) president Ismail Nasaruddin Abdul Wahab was dismissed unlawfully by Malaysia Airline System Bhd ( MAS ) in 2013 over comments he made about the airline.

In allowing Ismail Nasaruddin's appeal to set aside the decision of a Court of Appeal that ruled in favour of MAS on Oct 7, 2020, Justice Nallini said the statements made by Ismail Nasaruddin were not malicious, nor recklessly false or extraneous.

She said the court accepted that the contents of the press statement by Ismail Nasaruddin were related to problems faced by employees at the workplace and criticism of the management's failure to address the problems."We do not think the appellant (Ismail Nasaruddin) abused the platform for his personal interest but that it was all done in the name of Nufam," she said adding that it was made with the view to improve the workplace conditions.
