WARN Act Violations / Mass Layoffs without proper compensation / California WARN Act Violations Attorney
Notice Is Required for Mass Layoffs and Company Closings
The Worker Adjustment Retraining Notification (WARN) Act is a body of legislation originally instituted to protect communities in small-town America. Small towns depend on the large companies in their areas for employment. When a company closes down its doors or conducts mass layoffs in a small town, it can render a large percentage of the town out of work, crippling the town’s economic vitality.
For this reason, the WARN Act requires notice for all employees that will be involved in a mass layoff or shutdown. This keeps the status quo in place for a period of time to allow the workers in this area to find other work and make arrangements necessary to keep the town from going under. The law now protects all workers, not just those in our small towns, from such mass layoffs without notice.
