In our ever-changing economy, many companies are reorganizing their operations to keep competitive. While such actions can help a company become more efficient, it may lead to the elimination of existing jobs and facilities. The ability of workers to readjust and find new employment after they have lost their jobs is a major concern of the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL).
For many workers who have been dislocated due to a layoff or plant closure, early intervention can play an important role in their successful reemployment and can help workers and communities adjust to the effects of layoffs and plant closings. As a result, Congress passed the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. The WARN Act provide workers with sufficient time to seek other employment or retraining opportunities before losing their jobs. Workers should consult an experienced employment law attorney to see if they may be protected by WARN if their job loss occurs. and what to do if they believe their employer has violated the WARN Act.
