CONTINENTAL AFA Settlement - $1.5 Million Class Settlement

Updated 9/24/12

On August 13, 2009, the court approved a final WARN settlement valued at up to $1.5 million dollars for the former employees of Continental AFA. Outten & Golden filed suit against ContinentalAFA Dispensing Co., Harbinger Capital Partners Master Fund I, Ltd., and Harbinger Capital Partners Special Situations Fund, L.P., in the Bankruptcy Court for the Eastern District of Missouri to secure the rights of former ContinentalAFA employees in connection with the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act).

ContinentalAFA terminated approximately 535 employees at its facilities on or about July 24, 2008 without providing them with 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. ContinentalAFA terminated employees on July 24, 2008 without providing them with advance written notice.
