ITT Educational Services, Inc.

UPDATE 5/8/19

On September 6, 2016, Outten & Golden filed suit in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware against ITT Educational Services, Inc. ("ITT"), seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the federal and California Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Acts. We contend ITT ordered mass layoffs on or about September 6, 2016, without providing its employees with advance written notice as required by the WARN Acts.

On September 16, 2016, ITT filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana. On September 16, 2016, Outten & Golden re-filed its WARN suit in the Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of Indiana, where the litigation is continuing. The case in the District of Delaware is stayed as a result of the bankruptcy.

On January 20, 2017, the Bankruptcy Court appointed Outten & Golden LLP interim class counsel to represent the WARN Act claimants. On May 7, 2019, the Court dismissed the other WARN class actions and approved the parties’ scheduling order.

In June 2019, the parties will participate in mediation before a retired bankruptcy judge, in an effort to reach a consensual resolution of the WARN class action.

If this mass layoff affected you, Outten & Golden 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.
