ESPN Zone workers demand dignity, compliance with the law

ESPN workers will be at Baltimore’s ESPN Zone location in the Inner Harbor Wednesday at 11 a.m. to put ESPN on notice for violation of the WARN Act and call for respect of workers’ rights. Workers will set a seven-day deadline to meet face to face with Disney-owned ESPN to resolve these abuses before taking legal action.

ESPN Zone shut-down Tuesday, June 15. Workers learned of the closing through the media, giving them a week’s notice they would be out of a job. The WARN Act requires that an employer give workers at least 60 days notice, with penalties attached if this is violated. The workers are represented by Maryland Legal Aid.
