Thread regarding Pulte Homes Inc. layoffs

Layoffs are happening and not sure why no posts here

I am sure people are afraid to speak up - I was surpised that no updates are being provided.

If you are affected - good luck and Godspeed.

The Tampa office will ultimately be closed and folded back into the North Florida division. Short supply and poor planning has it on the chopping block

The DOL makes clear that notice must still be given in the face of a natural disaster, whether in advance or after the employment loss caused by the disaster. Where a WARN triggering event occurs as an indirect result of natural disaster, this exception will not apply, but the “unforeseeable business circumstance” may be applicable. 20 CFR 639.9 (c)(3) - (4).
Currently, no case law addresses whether a pandemic such as COVID-19 would qualify as a “natural disaster” under WARN, and very few cases discuss the “natural disaster” exception generally. At least one court has stated that human involvement in the origins of an event would preclude it from being a natural disaster. Carver v. Foresight Energy, LP, 2016 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 90665, at *12 (C.D. Il. 2016) (any employer relying on this exception would be required to present facts and arguments that show a direct nexus between the virus and the WARN event, as opposed to an indirect one).

Natural disasters and “unforeseen business circumstances” are listed exceptions under Warn. Covid is being classified as a natural disaster.
