Education Corporation of America

UPDATE 12/06/2018

On December 6, 2018, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed a class action suit against Education Corporation of America (“ECA”) seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act. We contend ECA ordered mass layoffs beginning on December 5, 2018 at its approximately 70 campuses, without providing its employees with 60 days advance written notice as required by the WARN Act. The case is pending in the United States District Court for the District of Delaware.

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.
