Thread regarding Optum layoffs

Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN)

If my employer has a layoff, should I get 60 days written notice and be paid for those 60 days?

These companies were sued because they failed to comply with the WARN ACT

This WARN publication from the American Bar Association is very informative

It depends on the size of the company and the number of workers laid off at one time. Most small employers will spread out layoffs over several months and keep the layoff number under 10% of their employees for each time a layoff takes place. That way they don't have to give notice or severance pay.
