Two former Knott's Berry Farm employees have filed suit in Los Angeles Superior Court, seeking damages for what they said were unfair terminations from the amusement park last August.
Billy E. Inman Sr. and Emmett John Meis joined at least two other employees who have filed wrongful-termination suits against Knott's. Their attorney, Stephen L. Belgum, said about 100 longtime employees were terminated without cause on the same day.
James E. Hnizdil and Harold Hodgson sued Knott's last month, also alleging wrongful terminations. Knott's spokesman Jim Hardiman said the amusement park had no comment at this time.
Meis, 40, of Buena Park, said he was terminated 20 days shy of his 15th year as an electrical supervisor and ride maintenance engineer at the park. At the time of his discharge, he was the first or second most senior employee in his division, he said.
