Know Your WARN Act Rights

The WARN Act protects your rights. Companies who ignore the laws in mass layoffs and company shutdowns violate your rights. The job of seasoned WARN Act attorneys Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian is to seek compensation when those rights are violated.

For a layoff to qualify under the federal WARN Act, the following must occur:

  • Employers must have 100 or more full-time employees who work more than six of the past 12 months and average over 20 hours a week (note that most government employers are not covered).
  • 50 or more laid-off employees at a site representing over a third of the workforce at a site are terminated (500 or more do not need to meet the 1/3 ratio).
  • 50 or more employees let go in a worksite shutdown.
  • Workforce reductions within a 30-day window are combined into one.
  • The 90-day rule combines two layoffs that may not meet the threshold individually.
