Another Class Action Lawsuit Filed Against Walt Disney Parks & Resorts Over Layoffs

On Monday, December 12th a new lawsuit was filed on behalf of the 250 Walt Disney Parks & Resorts technology cast members that were laid off in 2015.  The ex-cast members claim that they were laid off and then trained their foreign replacements.  A previous lawsuit was filed on this matter, which was dismissed in October 2016.  The judge dismissed the case due to belief that statements made by the plaintiffs were false.



This new lawsuit has now been filed specifically citing racial origins and that individuals were laid off “based solely on their national origin and race.” If the employees won this lawsuit it would award them lost wages including back pay with interest, reinstatement to a comparable position and benefits.  We will keep you posted as we learn more on the outcome of this complicated matter.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
