Crowne Architectural Systems - Class Settlement - $900,000

Update 5/8/2019

On April 14, 2017, Outten & Golden filed suit against Crowne Architectural Systems, Inc., ("Crowne") seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Act or lost wages, including severance pay equal to one week of pay for each full year of employment, under the New Jersey WARN Act. We contend Crowne ordered mass layoffs on or about February 16, 2017, without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice. The case is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey.

On April 17, 2019, the Bankruptcy Court granted final approval of a $900,000 class settlement, inclusive of attorneys’ fees, expenses, and the class representative’s service payment. Settlement checks will be mailed to the members of the settlement class following the Bankruptcy Court’s approval of the chapter 7 trustee’s final report.

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 back pay and benefits.
