Following mass layoff, workers sue for violation of WARN act

On March 12, Entertainment Publications, the publisher of the popular Entertainment coupon books, filed for bankruptcy. The Michigan company moved to liquidate its assets, listed at approximately $13.8 million to pay debts listed at approximately $52.1 million. At the same time, the company laid off more than 350 workers. A group of those employees filed a class action suit, alleging an employment dispute. The Federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Act requires employers to give employees at leave 60 days advance notice when laying off employees or to pay 60 days of wages and benefits. Employees claim they did not receive the required notice or benefits.

Actor files lawsuit over employment contract

Some counties have already taken steps toward creating their own business courts prior to this legislation and will require only minor adjustments to current operations. For others this will be an entirely new legal experience.

Any dispute between workers and employers has the potential to become disruptive.
