New York WARN Act

Your Rights under the New York WARN Act

Beyond the protection provided by the federal Worker Adjustment and Retaining Notification (New York WARN) Act, the New York WARN Act goes a bit further in ensuring compensation and benefits for hard-working residents. Few attorneys have the knowledge of our WARN Act lawyers, Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian. They filed what may be the very first class action under the New York WARN Act. Few firms boast our breadth of experience and nationwide scope in class action litigation.

New York WARN Act Expanding on Federal Regulations

With more employees covered and longer notice required, New Yorkers can count on greater protection under the state mandates. WARN Act litigation attorneys Jack A. Raisner and René S. Roupinian will educate you on the pros and cons of the New York WARN Act and move forward with a claim.

The New York WARN Act requires the following:

  • Employers with 50 or more full-time employees (federal is 100) must provide advance written notice of a shutdown, layoff or relocation of at least 50 miles.
  • Notice must come within 90 days (an increase of 30 over the federal WARN Act) prior to job loss.
  • The layoff involves 25 or more full-time employees (federal is 50) that represent 33 percent of the workforce or over 250 (as opposed to 500) staff members.
  • The 60-day period of back pay awards counts calendar days, not working days.
  • Notice is required for certain relocations.
