Thread regarding Nokia Corp. layoffs

NJ WARN act was amended on July 19, 2020 -- Was the NJ WARN Act triggered with recent layoffs in NJ?

Was the NJ WARN Act triggered with the recent layoffs in NJ? If so, Nokia owes those who were laid-off more money. Normally, Nokia doesn't give a 60 day advance notice (Not even a one day advance notice.) Any lawyers out there who can help understand this better?

A termination or transfer of operations during any continuous 30-day period that results in the termination of employment of 50 or more employees
If a triggering event occurs, the employer must provide 90 days advance notice (increased from 60 days) of the termination
Under the amended NJ WARN Act, an employer will be required to pay severance in an amount equal to one week of pay for every full year of employment to affected employees, regardless of whether advance notice is provided. Currently, severance pay is required as a penalty for failing to provide WARN notice. Under the amended law, employers who fail to provide the required 90-day notice will be required to pay an additional four weeks of severance pay.

This does not apply due to NJ Covid-19 executive order by the governor. It protect the employER and not the employee. Google search it.

Does anyone know if the NJ Warn Act applies to "Functional Elimination" of the job? Anyone call Nokia HR and/or NJ Gov Murphy's office? If so, what was the response?

In response to the COVID-19 epidemic, the NJ WARN Act was amended again. No longer is July 19, 2020 the effective date of above amendments. They will now take effect 90 days after the termination of Executive Order 103 of 2020, which is Governor Murphy’s March 9, 2020 Executive Order declaring a state of emergency in New Jersey due to COVID-19.
