HK Disney faces legal action over “naked” firings

HONG KONG (AFP) – Four Hong Kong Disneyland staff members are taking legal action against the resort after they were fired for cavorting naked in the changing rooms in an incident captured on video, a union spokeswoman has said.


The Hong Kong Disneyland Cast Members Union said Monday it had reported the American company to Hong Kong's labour disputes tribunal because it felt Disneyland had acted unfairly in dismissing the men for sexual harassment.

"This is a serious accusation and it is being dealt with without any transparency," said union spokeswoman Elaine Hui. "The four have not been given an opportunity to give their side of the story."

Hui said the video purportedly showed the four men larking around naked in the changing room after a day's shift.

One was allegedly wearing a towel around his waist that the other three were accused of trying to pull off.

More worrying, Hui said, was that the Disneyland management should have based its decision to fire the four on surreptitiously shot videos of the incident.

"Who was filming it? How was a camera allowed in that part of the resort where cameras are strictly forbidden?" she asked. "There is no closed circuit TV (CCTV) in that room so where did it come from?"

The union said the four were dismissed without seeing the video or being able to give an explanation for their behaviour.

Disney was preparing a response to media inquiries about the incident.
