Maintenance workers have filed a class action lawsuit against Disney Parks alleging various labor law violations when working at Disneyland Resort hotels.

Maintenance Workers File Lawsuit Against Disneyland Resort

Assistant maintenance engineer Charlie Torres filed the lawsuit on behalf of a class of over 115 current and former workers in Orange County Superior Court on Thursday, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The suit claims Disney forced workers to pay for their own tools, did not pay the required double minimum wage and correct overtime rate, failed to provide proper rest and meal breaks, and failed to provide accurate wage statements. The suit seeks $1 million minimum in back pay.

Lawyer Ron Zambrano said in a statement, “Mr. Torres and so many others are told to cover the expense of tools used on behalf of Disney who flouts the law and refuses to pay its workers what they’re due. Disney is a massive company. They know the law.”

Disney did not immediately respond to THR’s requests for comments.
