Broward County commissioners decided Tuesday that airport contractor Eulen America could continue to work at Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport in spite of concerns over whether the company violated county law requiring that workers not be laid off during a change of contract. 

About 25 workers from the company's wheelchair assistance service were terminated after Eulen took over operations for Delta in March.

Broward County Commissioners are now involved in ongoing investigations into the airport contractor Eulen America.

The company took over a contract with Delta Air Lines at the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport last week. But, commissioners are scrutinizing whether it failed to comply with a county law requiring that workers not be laid off during a change of contract.

Long shifts outside without water breaks, broken and dangerous equipment, wage theft and an entrenched climate of fear. Contracted baggage haulers, airplane cleaners and other employees say working conditions at Miami International Airport are inhumane and abusive.
