Level Solar

UPDATE 5/8/2019

On September 21, 2017, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Level Solar, Inc. ("Level Solar") in the Supreme Court of the State of New York seeking to recover up to 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the New York Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification ("WARN") Act. We contend Defendant ordered mass layoffs on or about September 19, 2017, without providing their employees with 90 days advance written notice.

On December 4, 2017, Defendant filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Southern District of New York. On February 7, 2018, Raisner Roupinian LLP initiated a WARN suit in the Southern District of New York Bankruptcy Court on behalf of the employees of Level Solar who were terminated on or about September 19, 2017.

On April 12, 2019, the Bankruptcy Court granted preliminary approval of a settlement on behalf of certain terminated Level Solar employees. Notice of the settlement was mailed on April 17, 2019. The Court will hold a final fairness hearing on May 21, 2019.

If the Court grants final approval, we anticipate a distribution will be mailed to the members of the settlement class by December 2019.

If this mass layoff affected you, Raisner Roupinian LLP can provide you with updated information regarding your rights in this case. Generally, the New York WARN Act requires companies to provide their employees with 90 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.
