New Entitlement: Prolonged Cancelled Flight Insurance

It is an unfortunate situation for those people whose travel to/from Europe was impacted by the massive flight cancellations due to the Icelandic volcano.

Many were unable to return to work, incurred large hotel and restaurant charges, missed college classes and exams, left children at home with baby sitters, nannies or relatives, etc.

Some feel it is their employers or their government's responsibility to help them cover those expenses. Apparently, if you are away on holiday and cannot return home to your job, the employer is not required to pay you for those missed days. but if they ask you to use your vacation accrual, they may be opening themselves to a health and safety legal rebuttal. Camping out in an airport lounge is not 'rest and recreation' and is not vacation.

As people become more and more socialistic, their justification for entitlements changes. To them, there is no such thing as fair play. To them, it is only fair if they receive compensation for their unfortunate situation, regardless of who pays.

The government or the employer owes them They can care less that that money comes from the taxpayers or customers.
