Thread regarding Optum layoffs

Optum layoff 2019

If your employer selects you for a layoff, under Federal law, your employer is required to give you 60 days notice (and pay you for those 60 days).

The 60 days is in addition to any severance you may be entitled to. This is required under the Federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act

In most states, there is also a state agency that enforces a similar law

If your employer does not give you 60 days notice (and / or does not pay you for those 60 days), you may file a complaint with these state agencies.

If your state is not listed here, please type state name Warn Act in any search engine to identify the agency for your state

Since WARN started as a Federal law, please review this information:

WARN act info isn't entirely true, the size of the layoff matters . Most of the layoffs wont include over 30% of the site's workforce or over 300 employees at one site. Almost 5 years ago I was a part of a layoff at the American deR kross and was only given a 28 day notice. That layoff included 16 employees out of 300 or so. I was informed by HR that they were only required to give me a 2 week notice, as part of company policy.
