In The News:

In doing research for an article on downsizing to be published in our next issue of MDM April 10, I came across this piece on the WARN Act from Fisher & Phillips LLP. MDM has tapped Fisher & Phillips as a source in the past for some of our articles on legal issues employers face.
 
As the author of this timely article points out: "When times are tough, the last thing a struggling business needs is a class-action lawsuit claiming the former employees are entitled to 60 days' additional pay under federal or state law."
 
The federal WARN Act (Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act) governs how employers handle laying off large groups of employees or the closure of facilities altogether. Some states also have what the law firm calls "mini-WARN Acts" covering smaller employers and smaller layoff groups than WARN.
