WARN act means nothing.look now at celadon and NEMF how can you hold a company accountable when they are done.stop giving false hope.wait for scozzafava to send you that 60 day notice your looking for..lolllllllllll
Dean will trim the fat in January. They will still make everyone on night shift crew come in on Christmas night and New Year’s Day to fire up those pasturizers and get those jugs of fluid out the door. And the cooler rats breaking their backs loading the trucks.
I'll add, Dean Foods can pay employees 60 days pay instead of giving 60 days notice. Most companies (even bankrupt companies) give notice rather than pay, but it's always possible that situations might arise where it's decided paying is a better option.
But don't believe any promises of severance at that point though. Example was a big retail chain that was headquartered near where I live that filed bankruptcy late last year- knew lots of people that worked there- company made all sorts of promises of severance in order to get employees to stay while they sold all the inventory they had on hand- and then on everyone's last day they were told "sorry, we really wanted to give you that severance we promised, but the court didn't approve it."
Layoffs might be announced before end of year, but even in bankruptcy Dean Foods is still subject to WARN Act. The WARN Act requires that employers provide employees 60 days notice of any mass layoff or shutdown.
