Fisker Automotive, Inc.

UPDATE 5/8/2019

On April 5, 2013, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed suit against Fisker Automotive, Inc. seeking to recover 60 days wages and benefits for former employees under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (“WARN”) Act and the California WARN Act. We contend Fisker ordered mass layoffs on or about April 5, 2013 without providing its employees with advance written notice. The Case is pending in the United States District Court for the Central District of California.

The case was certified as a class action and notice of the case was mailed to the members of the class on September 5, 2013.

The case is currently stayed due to Fisker’s Bankruptcy filing.

On November 26, 2013, Raisner Roupinian LLP filed a WARN Act suit against against Fisker Automotive, Inc in United States Bankruptcy Court for the District of Delaware where Fisker filed for Bankruptcy.

The parties have completed the discovery phase of the litigation and are awaiting rulings from the Bankruptcy Court on certain post-discovery motions.

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.
