We Can Ensure Your Employer Followed The Law When Laying Off Workers
The federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) is designed to provide protections to workers who are going to be the subject of a mass layoff. In most circumstances for businesses with more than 100 employees, employers must give 60 days’ advance notice of impending layoffs and closures. This can give you time to enter training programs to learn new skills and perhaps seek new employment.
Call our attorneys if you believe that your employer violated your rights under the WARN Act. We can review all of the evidence and determine if your employer did not follow the law.
