Universal Employee Back At Work After Alleged “Gun-Free Zone” Firing

posted on April 6, 2016

Last December, Universal Orlando employee and concealed-carry permit holder Dean Kumanchik left his firearm in his car in the company parking garage. While he was working, his handgun was stolen from his vehicle, and when park officials found out, they fired Kumanchik—a $30-per-hour ride tech and 23-year veteran of the company—for violating the company’s “gun-free zone” policy.

Kumanchik filed a wrongful termination suit based on a Florida law allowing employees to keep firearms in parking lots of private businesses, but Universal made the ludicrous claim that a small alternative school located on park property should classify the entire park as a school zone. 

Fortunately, prior to the court date, the parties reached an agreement, giving Kumanchik his job back. “We are pleased to announce that a confidential settlement agreement was reached, and our client has been returned to work in his prior position,” Kumanchik’s attorney, Richard Celler, said. “The right to carry is a vital one, and we take threats to that right seriously.
