Disney Agrees To Settle With Employees

Two Disneyland employees who accused the company of wrongfully charging them with stealing free passes to the park and then using strong-arm tactics to extract confessions have agreed to a settlement, the Orange County Register reported Wednesday.

Jacqueline Madory, a 16-year employee, and Gregg Evangelho, a onetime winner of the "Disney Spirit" employee award, both claimed that they were virtually imprisoned in a room at the park by Disney security guards who grilled them about the missing passes. Citing a confidentiality agreement, the pair declined to discuss terms of the settlement -- as did Disney.
