I have several questions about the WARN act -- the wording states:
A “mass layoff” is defined as a reduction in force that: (1) is not the result of a plant closing; and (2) results in an employment loss at the single site of employment during any 30-day period for either:
At least 33% of the employees (excluding any part-time employees) and at least 50 employees (excluding any part-time employees); or
At least 500 employees (excluding any part-time employees).
example: a site has 150 employees. 33% of 150 =49
question: can they lay off 49 employees without notice because it does not meet the 50 employee requirement?
Example: a site has 300 employees. 33% of 300 = 99
Question: can they lay off 98 people without notice?
Example: a site has 600 employees but 400 are part time.
Question: Can they lay off all 600 people without warning because they have only 200 full time workers?
Found this as a reply to another thread by @VTpwnt1-Lnqd , but these questions are something that I was wondering about as well.
