The Walt Disney Company


The Walt Disney Company has systematically underpaid women, depriving female employees of more than $150m in wages in California since 2015, according to a new analysis of salary data carried out as part of a class-action lawsuit alleging widespread pay gaps at the company. Attorneys for a group of women suing Disney alleged in the state court in Los Angeles that the entertainment and media corporation has paid women an average of 2% less than men doing equivalent jobs, in violation of California’s Equal Pay Act. The case is one of many pay gap class-actions against high-profile companies in recent years.
