Minnesota Workers Adjustment Retraining Notification Act (WARN) Attorneys

Workers Adjustment Retraining Notification Act

Employers are legally required to provide 60 days’ notice to employees being released (laid off) in a Workers Adjustment Retraining Notification Act (WARN) event. The WARN event is described in the law and has specific circumstances defined: 50 or more full time (six-month tenured) employees being laid off within 30 days of one another; provided that the 50 or more employees equal at least one-third of all employees working at the facility. If 500 or more employees at a facility are laid off, those also are covered under the WARN Act. Covered business must have a minimum of 100 employees.

If you are an employee of a business covered under the WARN provisions, and those provisions were not followed, you can file a legal claim for one day of severance compensation for each day you failed to receive notice by the employer. Employees given no notice could be entitled to 60 days severance and benefits.

Even if your employer has filed bankruptcy that contributed to failure to comply with WARN notification procedures, you should contact Tarshish Cody PLC law firm to discuss your legal rights. Our attorneys can pursue your legal claims under bankruptcy proceedings. We welcome your call today at 952-361-5556 (or fill out the free case evaluation form below) to help you through the legal issues of your WARN case.
