WORKPLACE CLOSURES

WORKPLACE CLOSURES 

Mass relocations, mass job terminations and layoffs serious matters that impact many California working families.  

Under the Cal-WARN Act (California Labor Code sections 1400-1408) an employer may not order a mass layoff, relocation, or termination unless, 60 days before the order takes effect, the employer gives written notice of the order” to employees and the Employment Development Department and include the specific notice elements required by the Federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (29 U.S.C. section. 2101 et seq.)   

An employer who fails to give legally required notice must pay each affected employee up to 60 days of back pay plus the value of employee benefits lost. An employer’s liability may be reduced by specific payments made.  

Cal-WARN is a technical statute requiring legal expertise.
