Do You Have A WARN Act Case?
If you are seeking legal advice on a possible
WARN Act violation, it is important that you do so as soon as quickly as possible. Employment and payroll records are often lost or destroyed after a mass layoff, plant closing, or facility shut down. There are also very strict rules regarding the amount of time that you have to assert claims in certain jurisdictions. This is especially true in Bankruptcy cases. The earlier an experienced attorney is involved in a case, the better the chance will be that those records, and your rights to assert a claim, have been preserved.

There are certain elements that must be present before the protections of the WARN Act are triggered. Even with these elements, there are also exceptions that may reduce or remove an employer′s liability during a mass layoff. Often, employers and their lawyers will use the complexities of the WARN Act to their advantage in discouraging laid off workers from pursuing WARN Act claims. An experienced WARN Act attorney can help you determine if an actual WARN violation may have occurred. Here are some of the questions that a WARN Act lawyer will ask in order to determine if a WARN Act violation may have taken place:
Did you receive written notification from your employer regarding a plant closing or mass layoff?
Was this notice delivered 60 days in advance of your employment loss?
Did you receive a reduced notice with an explanation as to why it was for less than 60 days?
Were you asked to come back to work to shut down the plant, or wind down operations?
What related companies may be liable for a WARN Act violation?
How many workers lost their employment at your location?
How many total people did the company employ?
Were you a seasonal or part-time employee?
How long were you employed by the company?
Did the company file for bankruptcy?
Did you receive a waiver agreement?
Did you receive severance pay?
