Heritage College

UPDATE 12/5/2016

On November 8, 2016, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit in the United States District Court for the District of Colorado against Weston Educational, Inc. d/b/a Heritage Institute, d/b/a Heritage College, d/b/a Missouri College ("Heritage") and Earl Weston (together, "Defendants") seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Act, unpaid wages and accrued paid time off. We contend Heritage ordered mass layoffs on or about November 1, 2016, without providing its employees with advance written notice as required by the WARN Act and that Defendants are liable for unpaid wages and accrued paid time off for the terminated Heritage employees.

On November 21, 2016, Heritage filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado. On November 29, 2016, Raisner Roupinian LLP moved its WARN suit in the Bankruptcy Court for the District of Colorado, where the litigation is continuing.

If this mass layoff affected you, or you are owed wages and accrued paid time off, Raisner Roupinian LLP can provide you with updated information regarding your rights in this case. 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.
