Disney is paying back thousands of employees who had to fork over money for their character costumes at Disney World.

  • The company will give workers nearly $4 million.
  • According to the Labor Department, Disney violated wage laws by deducting a "uniform or costume" expense from employees' paychecks.
  • The deduction caused their pay to fall below the federal minimum wage.
