More than 145 Disney employees were notified today they are being laid off amid restructuring at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, the company said.
Disney said the restructuring involved more than 0.1 percent of the division, meaning more than 145 people are losing their jobs. The cuts were made to the human resources, finance, marketing and sales and operations departments for the global division of more than 145,000 employees at 12 theme parks and 52 resorts in North America, Europe and Asia. Notices were not seen on a state website where large-scale layoffs must be posted in Florida.
The employees let go did not have primary duties dealing directly with customers, so Disney said it did not expect visitors to experience any changes visiting the theme parks or hotels. The company said it’s preparing for future growth and priorities but declined to offer more details.
Disney is helping employees who lost their jobs find other work internally or find work outside the company.
