They have been steadily laying off in New Jersey but no updates to the NJ DOL WARN website. How are they circumventing this rule?
That was my question for Nokia as well. There have been many many layoffs at Nokia NJ USA location. I called the NJ labor department and they told me that the companies in NJ are no longer required to inform the labor department of layoffs.
Also, I heard that the total number of layoffs at a site has to greater then 1% of "all" employees within the company. So if world wide, there are 100,000 employees, then there has to be at least 1000 or more employees who get laid off on that day from that facility to have to inform the NJ labor department 60 days prior to the layoff.
Just call the NJ labor WARN office if you have questions, but this is my understanding.
