Have you ever heard of a "writ of body attachment?" Me neither, until yesterday. That's when the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals issued one against Timothy and Carley Dillett, two corporate officials of Haven Salon + Spa, and ordered federal marshals to take them into custody.
What did the Dilletts do to earn the ire of a federal appeals court and wind up in custody?
They repeatedly and willfully ignored the NLRB's and the Court's orders.In 2021, the NLRB held that Haven Salon + Spa violated the National Labor Relations Act by firing an employee for raising concerns about the adequacy of the company's Covid-19 safety protocols during the height of the pandemic. The NLRB's order required Haven Salon + Spa to offer reinstatement to the fired employee, among other relief.
