You Have Rights If Your Retail Employer Lays You Off
Those employed in the retail, food and medical industries are seeing jobs disappear in high numbers. Experiencing a job loss is one thing for them. Being suddenly let go without the benefit of advanced notice as required by the Worker Adjustment and Retaining Notification (WARN) Act makes a bad situation that much worse.
If you have been displaced from your job following the closing of the restaurant, store or medical facility that employed you, Contact Us at 1-212-245-1000 or toll free at 1-877-927-6228. You may be entitled to compensation under the WARN Act.
Champions for Employees in the Retail, Food and Medical Industries
Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian champion the cause of hard-working retail employees shocked by a sudden mass layoff. Retail companies throughout the country have felt the brunt of our aggressive approach in holding them accountable for violations of the WARN Act. Those include a leading consumer marketing company, a major printer, and a corporate training services facility.
Specifically, we have brought suit against Bill Heard -- the largest Chevrolet retail chain -- and Steve & Barry's discount clothing store chain. We moved quickly to protect the rights of 1,000 employees laid off by a hospital in Birmingham, Alabama.
