"Oracle has a large, experienced legal team, and they run layoffs every year, sometimes multiple of them. My guess is they didn't slip up on something this basic."
Except they did. I was called early in the day that I was RIFed. It took a whole 8.5 hours to get that DocuSign over to me.
I have never met a company so un-eager to let people go. Usually companies can't wait to cut folks loose fast enough and move on.
"Did Oracle violate WARN?"
No but my manager violated my b*tthole during my 1-on-1 with him on Monday.
You can sue but you need to decide which is better: the Oracle severance package or the minimal package dictated by WARN policies. Most likely, Oracle severance is better but you will need to research based on your regional laws.

WARN is a federal act. And typically large companies have their lawyers check every action to ride ride up against the guidelines without going over. In a large company, you can ditch surprisingly large numbers of people every 90 days and still stay under WARN requirements. Especially when pulling from different locations.
