On August 22, 2017, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Alevo Manufacturing, Inc., (“Defendant”) seeking to recover up to 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act, and for unpaid accrued time off. We contend Defendant ordered mass layoffs on or about August 18, 2017, without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice. The case is pending in the United States Bankruptcy Court for the Middle District of North Carolina.
If this mass layoff affected you, 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.
