Workers at the former ESPN Zone sports bar in Baltimore, Maryland, are suing the Walt Disney Corporation for suddenly closing the business this past June. The former employees of the Inner Harbor neighborhood restaurant, filed suit in federal district court on October 24, seeking wages they say they were owed for being fired without the required notice.
The plaintiffs claim that federal law requires employers to give at least 60 days notice to workers if they intend to close their business, reports the local CBS affiliate WJZ13. Workers claim that they found out only days before the closing of the ESPN Zone that they would be losing their jobs. One former employee told WJZ that he found out about the closing on Facebook.
