Another Walt Disney World employee is suing the company. She will be joining a growing list of employees, both past and present suing Walt Disney World. Helena Mobley filed her lawsuit in Orange County Circuit Court last week.
Mobley has been with Walt Disney World for almost 24 years, her file claims she has been looked over for promotions because she is married to a black man. She has worked mostly as an administrative assistant in security. She filed a discrimination complaint and was then told she could not work in the security division any longer, she moved to custodial administrative assistant. She is seeking damages and attorney’s fees.
Mobley went to the US Equal Opportunity Employment Commission because she feels she was more than qualified for the promotion in which she was overlooked for. US EOEC sent her a right to sue letter.
Mobley is the 8th employee, past and present, in the security unit to file a suit since 2011. 3 of those lawsuits were voluntarily dismissed by the plaintiffs, 1 won no monetary compensation but was told discrimination may have been in play, and one has lost her suit but has filed again.
Mobley and three other are pending, of those four lawsuits 3 are current employees. Jerry Girley is representing all of the lawsuit, he says about Mobley’s suit (and change of position);
“ The security positions are highly coveted and high status positions within the company, conversely custodial and housekeeping are the least favored positions”
On Wednesday Disney said they have not yet been served and would respond in court.
