Disneyland Cast Members Left Waiting for Medical Pay as COVID-19 Cases Rise
Workers United Local 50, one of the unions representing Disneyland Cast Members, has reported that “response time” on COVID-19 related medical pay is currently delayed.
Full-time and select part-time Cast Members qualify for up to two weeks of pay for missed shifts if they have a confirmed case of COVID-19. The union advises that “To receive pay cast may be required to submit documentation. The Disney COVID team should submit all necessary forms, and we recommend that cast request pay be submitted when talking with a Disney representative.”
Disney is reportedly aware of the delays and is “placing more resources to help with the problem.” Until the problem is resolved, Cast Members may be stuck waiting for their compensation.
