COVID-19 & Layoffs
The Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act, 29 U.S.C. § 2101 et seq., is a federal law that prohibits certain employers from closing or conducting layoffs until after it has given sixty (60) days’ notice to applicable union officials or the employee, and local government officials. The COVID-19 pandemic has thrust many unforeseen challenges on employers, and none is more jarring that the sudden need to lay off workers.
