Disney Facing National Origin Discrimination Claims

July 21st, 2017
Disney

A group of laid-off information technology workers in Florida have sued Walt Disney World, claiming that they were the victims of national origin discrimination. The American workers were replaced by contractors from India. They are seeking punitive damages.

Before leaving, the American workers were required to train their replacements. The replacement workers were all of Indian origin, and either came here from overseas or were working outside of the United States.

According to the lawsuit, the plaintiffs were subject to disparate treatment by their employer on the sole basis of their race, color, and ancestry. The former workers claim they were treated unprofessionally by Disney managers who reserved special treatment for the new workers. The lawsuit also claims violations against the Older Worker Benefit Protection Act, which protects workers from age discrimination.

If you believe you have been the victim of discrimination at work, please call the Philadelphia employment discrimination lawyers at Sidney L. Gold & Associates P.C. at 215-569-1999, or contact us online to schedule a free consultation.
