JD Supra Features Article by Sal Gangemi and Alyssa Ferreone on Lawsuit Against Twitter for Alleged Violations of Federal and State WARN Acts
November 30, 2022
JD Supra recently featured an article by Sal Gangemi and Alyssa Ferreone, which appeared on our Employment Law Blog on the recent lawsuit filed against Twitter for alleged violations of federal and state WARN Acts.
As the authors note, "The WARN Act requires employers to provide employees with written notice 60 days in advance of covered mass layoffs. WARN and its implementing regulations define “mass layoffs” as those resulting in an employment loss during any 30-day period for 500 or more employees, or for 50-499 employees if they make up at least 33% of the employer’s active workforce."
Sal and Alyssa point out that "While it cannot be determined at this point if Twitter actually violated the WARN Act, employers need to consider WARN and state “mini-WARN” laws before conducting mass layoffs or plant closings. An employer that violates the federal WARN act is liable to each affected employee for an amount equal to back pay and benefits for the period of violation, up to 60 days."
