Crowne Architectural Systems, Inc. – $900,000 Settlement
On April 14, 2017, we filed suit against Crowne Architectural Systems, Inc., Inc. (“Crowne”), seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the federal Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act or lost wages, including severance pay equal to one week of pay for each full year of employment, under the New Jersey WARN Act. We contend Crowne ordered mass layoffs on or about February 16, 2017, without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice.
On April 17, 2019, the Bankruptcy Court for the District of New Jersey granted final approval of a $900,000 class settlement, inclusive of attorneys’ fees, expenses, and the class representative’s service payment.
On September 28, 2020, settlement checks were mailed to the members of the WARN class (net of class counsel’s fees, expenses, service payment and applicable payroll withholding) by the settlement administrator. Class members have 90 days from the date checks were issued to deposit them. Any checks remaining uncashed after 90 days will be deposited with the Registry of the Court.
