It looks like even the family oriented Disney World may not pay there employees as required under the Fair Labor Standards Act. According to this lawsuit, a former Senior Financial Analyst at Walt Disney Pictures filed a class action lawsuit against the company due to overtime pay and labor code violations. However, it could be over soon because the parties have reached a tentative agreement, subject to Court approval, to resolve the dispute without an admission of liability on the part of Disney.
The lawsuit involving Katherine Clay, on behalf of thirty former and current employees of the company, seeks various levels of damages for each plaintiff class member up to $4000 depending how long they worked at Walt Disney Pictures. “The failure by Disney to pay lawful overtime compensation and missed meals and rest break premium pay to each plaintiff class member, and the failure to timely pay all pay due upon termination of employment to each Class member no longer employed are unlawful and unfair business practices within the meaning of Business and Professional Code,” according to the complaint in the lawsuit.
