Furloughed? Placed on temporary layoff? Does that mean you’ve lost your job?
During the Covid-19 pandemic, employees are being told they’re “furloughed” or “temporarily laid off” without realizing their jobs are actually gone. Suffering the financial shock and indignity of an unexpected loss of work is awful. But confusion only makes things worse. If you are on a “furlough” or “temporary layoff” without a return date, you may be left guessing whether you still have a job. It may deter you from seeking unemployment or a new job. But it should not stop you from finding out if you are eligible to obtain up to 60 days’ pay and benefits under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act.
The WARN Act is a notice statute and its purpose is to bring clarity when you are caught in a mass layoff, shutdown, or furlough. WARN is violated when the termination notice comes too late, or never comes at all.
You may have lost your job – regardless of what your leave is called. You may be due compensation under WARN law specifically because you were wrongfully kept in the dark about keeping your job. Learn more, here.
