Thread regarding DIRECTV layoffs

Were you laid off? WARN Act

The WARN Act requires an employer to notify employees, in writing, 60 days before a layoff, and pay the employee for those 60 days, in addition to any severance the employee may be entitled to. Unfortunately, some employers attempt to circumvent the law. If your employer did not provide you the 60 days’ notice (and pay you for those 60 days), please contact the Federal Department of Labor (DOL) or your state’s WARN office for help.

The original Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) was a Federal law that applied to all 50 states. Since the Federal WARN law was passed, most states have enacted a state WARN Act.

Among other things, the state WARN acts require employers to report layoff statistics to a state office. In fact, an employer may report the number of employees they intend to layoff, by location, before the layoff and report that information to a state WARN act office that may be available on a state web site.

Therefore, assuming the employer complied with state law, you might be able to learn about the number of employees an employer intends to layoff, by location, before the layoff. Otherwise, you can determine the number of employees that were laid off after the layoff.

If your employer laid off employees and you don’t find the layoff statistics on your state’s WARN Web site, you may anonymously report this to your state’s office responsible for the WARN act, and they will instruct the employer to report the statistics

What if severance is greater than 60 days- does it still apply (the 60 day notice or pay?).
