Speaking Creole led to suspension, job loss at Logan, two Haitians say

Two Haitian immigrants who work for a cleaning company at Logan International Airport said they have been unfairly disciplined for speaking Creole on the job.

One said she was fired by the company, Flight Services & Systems, and the other said he was suspended. The two have filed complaints with the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination and plan to bring their situation before board members of ­Logan’s operator, the Massachusetts Port Authority, at their monthly meeting Thursday.
