ClearEdge Power – $1.3 Million Class Settlement
On April 28, 2014, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against ClearEdge Power Inc., and ClearEdge Power LLC (“ClearEdge”) in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of California seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act. We contend ClearEdge ordered mass layoffs on or about April 25, 2014, without providing its employees with advance written notice. 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.
On April 5, 2016, Judge Novack granted final approval of the WARN class action settlement in the amount of $1,300,217.43, and entered the Final Order. The settlement funds were distributed to the class members on May 3, 2016. Class members will have 90 days from the day of issuance to cash their checks.
