Worker Adjustment And Retraining Notification Act

(WARN Act 29 U.S.C. § 2101 to 2109)

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN Act) is a federal law that provides protection to workers, their families, and their communities by requiring larger employers to provide written notice at least 60 days prior to a mass layoff, facility shutdown, or plant closing. The notice must contain very specific information, and must be in writing. The advance notice required by the WARN Act gives employees and their families a chance to keep earning a wage while they find, adjust, and retrain for a new job. The WARN Act provides protection to all non-governmental employees including blue and white collar workers and salaried and hourly employees.

In addition to the protections of the federal WARN Act, several states, including,
, New York, New Jersey, and Ohio provide protections to laid-off or terminated employees under state versions of the WARN Act.
