ESPN Zone Closure Prompts Lawsuit by Laid Off Workers

ESPN Zone Closure Prompts Lawsuit by Laid Off Workers

When the Inner Harbor’s ESPN Zone closed without much advance notice (in the summer, too, when one would think tourism would increase the patronage), 150 workers lost their jobs.  They filed a class action suit in federal court to protest the company’s failure to comply with the WARN Act, which requires 60 days’ notice of large-scale layoffs.

A blog post describing the suit, the campaign for a living wage at downtown restaurants and stores whose owners have received taxpayer subsidies, and the experiences of some of the laid-off workers, is here.
