Delta settles allegations that it misused disabled workers’ fund

Atlanta-based Delta Airlines will pay $70 million into a trust fund for disabled employees and retirees to settle U.S. Labor Department allegations that the airline misused the fund to pay severance packages after the 9/11 attacks.

Delta admitted no wrongdoing, and gained permission to replenish the funds at its own discretion but before the company runs out of cash.

The company may continue to pay severance benefits out of the fund, which covers roughly 70,000 current and former employees, but may not expand its use for any further purposes.
