Ohio Employees Need Protection Under the WARN Act

Job losses in Ohio increase year after year. Currently the state ranks second to Michigan's job losses over a seven-year period. With that in mind, the WARN Act was sponsored by late U.S. Senator Howard Metzenbaum. His successor, Sherrod Brown, and other United States senators continue to champion the cause of protecting hard-working people in Ohio and throughout the country.

Illinois WARN Acts Expands on Federal Regulations

With more employees covered, Illinois employees can count on greater protection under the state mandates. WARN Act litigation attorneys Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian will educate you on the pros and cons of the Illinois Act and move forward with a claim.

The Illinois WARN Act goes a further than the federal WARN Act in protecting the hard-working employees in Illinois from shut downs and mass layoffs. The Illinois WARN Act applies to:

  • Employers with only 75 or more full-time employees (the federal law requires 100)
  • Mass layoffs of only 25 or more full-time employees (the federal law requires 50) who are laid off if they constitute one-third or more of the full-time employees at the site, or
  • Shut downs or layoffs of 250 or more full-time employees (the federal law requires 500).
