As anticipated  yesterday, several Disneyland workers have filed what they hope will become a class action lawsuit. At issue is the fact that their employee badges contain barcoded Social Security numbers that can be read by mobile apps.

Sarah Tully reports that the lawsuit against Walt Disney Co. was filed in federal court in U.S. District Court in Los Angeles today.

The Walt Disney Co. issues ID cards that are encoded with Social Security numbers, which violates California law, according to the lawsuit. The codes can be read by most cellular phones, including the Apple iPhone and Android devices, according to employees.

Read more in the OC Register. The lawsuit alleges violation of the California Constitution’s privacy protection as well as California business law.

Update: A copy of the complaint has been posted to Courthouse News.
