Sacred Heart Hospital- $360,000 Class Settlement

UPDATE 7/7/2015

On July 9, 2013, Outten & Golden filed suit against West Side Community Hospital Inc., d/b/a Sacred Heart Hospital ("Sacred Heart") seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Act. We contend Sacred Heart ordered mass layoffs on or about July 1, 2013, without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice. Generally, the WARN Act requires companies to provide their employees with 60 days written notice in advance of a mass layoff or plant closing. In the absence of such notice, employers may be liable to each affected employee for 60 days wages and benefits.

On May 20, 2015, Judge Wedoff granted final approval of the WARN class action settlement in the amount of $360,000.00. Settlement checks (net of attorney's fees, litigation expenses, the class representative's service payment, and applicable tax withholdings) were mailed by the Trustee to members of the WARN class on June 30, 2015. Class members have 90 days from the date of issuance of the settlement checks to deposit or cash their checks before the funds revert to the Sacred Heart Estate to pay other creditor claims.
