IT workers file suit against Disney

You Have Rights As A Worker. I Will Help Protect Them.
The Kaufman Law FirmOctober 10, 2015Workplace Discrimination

Throughout California and, indeed, the United States as a whole, a huge number of workers endure conditions that are simply unacceptable. Whether they are being paid too little or forced to work for too long or being subject to a hostile or unsafe work environment, it is something no one should have to put up with. However, many people do not realize that they may be able to get legal support.

In California, an employee of Disney is said to have filed a discrimination complaint against the company. However, this is not the only worker to be taking legal action against Disney for this reason. Several former employees of the company are also pursuing discrimination claims while ongoing court cases are also underway concerning two IT services firms, both of which are based in India. These cases also involve accusations of discrimination.

The legal action follows the alleged replacement of a number of IT workers with H-1B contractors. As part of the replacement system, the dismissed workers are even having to train the contractors stepping into their roles. It has been suggested that this constitutes discrimination based on national origin as the terminated IT workers were U.S. citizens and they were all replaced with foreign nationals.

It is impossible to predict how the case will end, but if you find yourself in a similar position, you might benefit from the guidance of a discrimination attorney. He or she can examine the details of your claim and may be able to help you strengthen your case and ensure it is heard by the court. With this assistance, you can increase your chances of securing a favorable settlement as you pursue the compensation and fair treatment you deserve.
