Thread regarding Sprint layoffs

No WARN notice? It seems Sprint is moving forward with a large layoff this month with no WARN notice having been provided.

If you have questions about sixty days notice (WARN notice) - here is an old but good thread:

Come on now. Sprint has gone through enough layoffs and employs enough employment lawyers to be "experts" with complying with the WARN Act. The act requires 60 days written notice before

termination. However, all it requires is that a notified employee be paid for 60 days after notification. So an employee may be notified their last day is at the end of the week, but the employer must pay the employee up to 60 days pay after the notification date.

If someone knew how, I am sure a class action lawsuit would be appropriate due to no WARN notice. The thing is, Sprint understands no one will stand up regarding this so nothing will happen.

WARN is an acronym for a piece of legislation.

The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act of 1988 (the "WARN Act") is a US labor law which protects employees, their families, and communities by requiring most employers with 100 or more employees to provide 60 calendar-day advance notification of plant closings and mass layoffs of employees, as defined in the Act. In 2001, there were about 2,000 mass layoffs and plant closures which were subject to WARN advance notice requirements and which affected about 660,000 employees.
