Yep, WARN notices often aren't filed until the employees have already been notified. (This isn't just a WDC thing) When I was laid off it took a week or more for it to show up on the California EDD website.
WARN applied last round. More waves coming plus lots of people are finding new jobs. Companies do talk about reductions and in the past we acknowledged colleagues who were impacted. This regime doesn’t really care. They are at least consistent.
for Fed: "Plant closings involving 50 or more employees during a 30-day period. Layoffs within a 30-day period involving 50 to 499 full-time employees constituting at least 33% of the full-time workforce at a single site of employment. Layoffs of 500 or more are covered regardless of percentage of workforce. (29 USC, et seq., 2101 and 20 CFR 639.3)"
for CA: "Plant closure affecting any amount of employees. Layoff of 50 or more employees within a 30-day period regardless of % of workforce. Relocation of at least 100 miles affecting any amount of employees. [California Labor Code Section 1400 (d)-(f)]"
historically, WD in CA posts the WARN notice the same day they do layoffs which is why the 'official' last day is in the future.
Most companies fire more people for incompetence than WDC lays off these days. People are dumb and keep talking about layoffs when a large company just isn’t going to talk about 5 here and 30 there. WARN is based on a %.... low %, no WARN
