IT workers accuse Disney of national origin discrimination

Many Florida workers become disillusioned when they fail to find employment after getting great educations at good colleges. Some may even find employment, only to be discharged and replaced by workers from foreign countries. It is alleged that national origin discrimination is prevalent, and a recent report indicates that increased numbers of American workers lose their jobs to workers from other countries who are in the country on H-1B visas and other forms of temporary residency.

Disney may soon face a discrimination lawsuit following the complaints of 23 IT workers who have taken their grievances to the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission. According to the complaints filed with the EEOC, the individuals claim to have lost their jobs at Disney only to be replaced by foreign workers. They contend that the termination of their services related to age and national origin discrimination.

The complaints further state that the Disney workers were forced to provide training to the foreign workers. Once training was completed, Disney allegedly terminated the employment of the experienced workers and replaced them with the newly trained foreign workers. Reportedly, some of the discharged Disney workers have started revealing the details of the displacement process publicly.

Workers who believe they have experienced unfair treatment at work in any way, including discrimination based on national origin, may benefit from discussing the allegations with experienced workplace discrimination attorneys. A lawyer can assess the circumstances in relation to workers' rights under federal and Florida employment laws. He or she can provide sound counsel and courtroom representation, if necessary, to obtain reinstatement and/or fair compensation.
