WARN Act Violations in the Workplace
About the Investigation:
Were you recently laid off or terminated as part of a mass layoff or shut down of a business, branch or location? If your employer failed to provide prior written notice of a mass layoff or job closure, or if your employer did provide notice, but only provided a shortened layoff notice (less than 60 days), your rights under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (“WARN”) may have been violated.
What is the WARN Act?
The WARN Act is a federal law meant to ensure the right of employees (of certain types of businesses) to fair notice before a mass layoff or closure of a company or branch of a company.
Under the WARN Act, employers must give 60 days’ written notice of upcoming closings or mass layoffs. There are exceptions to this rule and our attorneys can assist you in evaluating whether your situation is covered by the WARN Act.
How An Attorney Can Help
If your employer failed to provide written notice of a layoff related to a job closure or mass layoff, or if you were only provided a shortened layoff notice (less than 60 days), then we encourage you to fill out the form on this page for a case evaluation.
There is no obligation involved in speaking to an attorney about your situation to find out whether you may have a case, but there is urgency because your rights under the WARN Act are time sensitive. Once your claim is barred based upon expired time limits, you will never be able to pursue any action to recover damages or other relief.
