More Disney Springs Restaurant workers have been let go from their jobs.

It is being reported online that Splitsville & Chef Art Smith’s Homecomin’ employees have been let go due to the Coronavirus closures.


Both restaurants have terminated all employees effective immediately and they will not be paid for their remaining shifts or offered a severance package.

Here is the official statement released to staff at these 2 locations

“The information regarding government mandates and operating restrictions are changing on a daily basis. No one is able to say when we will be able to open again. When looking at all the directives that have been issued during the crisis, and understanding there will be many more to come, it is our opinion that we will not be able to re-open our restaurants for quite some time. We are very sorry to say that we do not know when we will be able to offer you any work hours. Based upon these set of circumstances, we are forced to make the decision to terminate the employment of all our employees, effective immediately. We believe this decision is necessary in an effort to be able to open our doors again in the future. We understand this is difficult, but with no work available in the near future, we feel this will allow all staff members to take advantage of their unemployment benefits and any other government assistance that will come available because of the crisis.

Reports indicate that Homecomin’s Twitter profile had to go private due to all of the backlash due to the terminations but like the statement issued above states this is so all staff members can take advantage of unemployment benefits.

The news comes after the announcement that all Landry’s employees at T-Rex and Rainforest Cafe have been furloughed earlier this week.
