Eclipse Aviation

UPDATE 01/31/2014

On March 3, 2009, Outten & Golden filed suit against Eclipse Aviation Corporation seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees of Eclipse Aviation under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act (the WARN Act). We allege Eclipse Aviation ordered mass layoffs on or about February 18, 2009 without providing the employees with advance written notice. The action is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware.

On March 24, 2009, the estate converted to Chapter 7. The parties have completed discovery, and recently engaged in formal mediation in an attempt to reach a consensual resolution of the suit. Unfortunately, that process was unsuccessful. The parties will now ask the Court to reach a decision on their respective motions and, depending on the outcome of the Court's rulings, proceed to trial.

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.
