What happen to the 1988 WARN Act? Where was the 60 day layoff notice?

Maybe for once someone from one of the clubs that are closing can clue us in on their P&L versus ones in their vacinity staying open? I’ve yet to see that anywhere.
I am from one of the stores that are closing. Yes they are paying us for 60 days. Until March 16 (I think that's the exact day). All of it does s---, but don't believe what the media is telling you. They did not just lock their doors and left people with nothing. They are doing everything they can to find us all jobs. The market team is in our store helping out with work around the club, and other people from different clubs. Again, yes it s---s what's happening, but I can't complain about how they're treating us. Members on the other hand, they came in today filled with greed. Very sad watching everything fly off the shelves.
There are definitely some Sam's Club shill's on here. Go ahead and trust your unethical corporation.
Sam's Club is violating the WARN Notice law. Brainwashing their employees to think that's OK. See the link below under the penalty section. The issue of 60 days pay is not following the law.
We are actually getting paid until April 13th.........that is 90 days
I'd like to hear what a real Sam's Club employee has to say. Are you really being paid 60 days? Did you get any notice at all? Too many shills in here.
We are getting 2 months of pay, regardless if we are working or not. If we are working we also get paid for the hours we work. Nothing illegal about that at all. In fact I thought it was way more than I was expecting. And tossing in a job fair with local wal-art and sams clubs, plus other area companies was kind of a nice thing. Heck, the hr lady at the wal-mart next door came over after she heard the news, to let us know they had openings. I thought that was a classy thing to do. Maybe alot of us hate the company right now, but there are still good people working there who actually care, and that gives me some hope.
i think their way of getting away with it, is just closing, but keeping people on payroll, dont know exactly how it works, but i read one store was doing that and said it applied to WARN rules..so yea it s---s..
They're paying them for 60 days after closing, that's the 60 day notice.
Do you really think a multi billion dollar company would not dot their I and cross their Ts. With possibly laying off so many people. I have been part of 2 restructures and know what that entails. Sure the compensation isnt the greatest but they give you options, work another location, work for wal mart, take severence pay.
