New Jersey WARN Act

Your Rights under the New Jersey WARN Act

Among all states, New Jersey's Worker Adjustment and Retaining Notification (New Jersey WARN) Act laws provide strong protection for laid off employees. Attorneys Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian of Outten & Golden LLP maintain a thorough awareness of both the federal WARN Act and the specific areas that make New Jersey's regulations not only unique, but also more protective than the federal law. They filed, and were named class counsel of perhaps the first large New Jersey WARN Act class action to be certified.

New Jersey residents who are downsized in violation of the WARN Act can be assured that the laws governing their home state will provide them with the protection they need. For help, Contact Us at 1-866-544-9945.

Your Options, Choices and Rights Under the New Jersey WARN Act

The New Jersey WARN Act makes available higher damage awards to unemployed New Jersey residents. When an abrupt layoff or closing ends your career, you have options. You have choices.

Most importantly, you have rights. Rights that will be defended by Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian . They brought one of the first cases certified as a class action under the New Jersey WARN Act.

Benefits of the New Jersey WARN Act

The New Jersey WARN Act states that employers must provide 60 days advance written notice with more detail than the federal law requires if 50 or more employees are affected by the following:

  • Termination of employment means that employees are laid off without a commitment to reinstate within six months of the layoff.
  • Termination of operations that results in the permanent or temporary closing of a single establishment.
  • Transfer of operations, defined as a permanent or temporary transfer of a single establishment to a location in or outside the United States.
  • A mass layoff that results in the termination of 500 or more full-time employees during 30 days or 50 or more employees representing one-third or more of the total staff during a 30-day period.

Communicating Your WARN Benefits to You

The WARN Act attorneys at Outten & Golden LLP inform all hard-working New Jersey residents that they may secure severance equal to one week of pay for each full year they worked for their employer. If the 60-day federal rule means more compensation, you receive that. Even if the notice falls short by one day, you are entitled to compensation and benefits.
