Walt Disney World Owes Cast Members Almost $450K Says U.S. Labor Department

The Associated Press is reporting that an investigation from the United States Department of Labor resulted in the decision that Walt Disney World owes 69 of its inventory control cast members in the food and beverage department $433,000 in back wages.

The report charges that the theme park resort violated the Fair Labor Standards Act because managers in the department failed to adhere to internal company policies regarding off-the-clock work. The time involved work performed by the cast members not only before and after scheduled work shift hours, but during meal times and from home as well.

According to the Labor Department, Walt Disney World has agreed to pay the cast members the amounts awarded.
