Philadelphia WARN Act Attorneys

The WARN Act (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act) is a federal law providing employees 60 days’ notice of a plant closing or mass layoff.  The law generally applies to employers with 100 or more full-time employees, where at least 50 employees are terminated or laid off at a single work location.  If the employer violates the notice requirement in these situations, it may be liable to the workers for up to 60 days of compensation (wages and value of benefits). 

Some states have state WARN acts that similarly protect workers.  Some such states have WARN laws that provide protections to workers that are greater than under federal law.  For example, the New York WARN Act requires that only 25 (rather than 50) workers’ employment be affected to trigger the law’s notice requirements.  Additionally, the New Jersey WARN Act also requires one week of severance per year of service to be paid to workerseven if the employer does give notice of a plant closing or mass layoff.

Federal and state WARN acts are complicated and contain many loopholes that employers try to exploit.  It is important to consult with a lawyer familiar with the intricacies of WARN laws to determine whether you may be owed compensation.
